A shocking video shows the moment two Chicago officers arrest a crying 10-year-old boy who reportedly ‘matched’ a description of an armed juvenile.

Michael Thomas Jr was playing in his grandparents’ yard just moments before the incident occurred.

In the terrifying video that was recorded on a bystander’s cell phone, shows Michael standing in front of a patrol car with his hands cuffed behind his back.

Authorities told NBC that they had received multiple calls of a 10- to 12-year-old with a gun in the area.

The officers tried explaining why they arrested Michael, saying they received a call about a juvenile and when they pulled up to the area, Michael started running when they approached him.

Several people were yelling at the officers in the video to let the boy go when one officer responded: ‘We’re going to let him go once we figure this out.’
