Lincoln police say they arrested a 16-year-old boy with a stolen firearm Saturday night in the parking lot at the Walmart near South 27th and Pine Lake Road.
Officer Erin Spilker said police were called at 7:30 p.m. about the boy with a warrant being in the store.
She said when they found him in a vehicle outside, he punched the officer multiple times in the face and tried to get away, but was caught. A backpack near where he had been sitting had a Glock 9 mm handgun inside and four magazines.
She said the firearm had been stolen, along with two AR-15s, in the area of 14th Street and Yankee Hill Road.
While being taken to the Youth Services Center, the teen kicked the interior of the cruiser, causing $1,000 damage to a camera, Spilker said.
He was referred to the Lancaster County Attorney's Office on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon, vandalism and assault on a police officer.
