Two LaGrange 17-year-olds and a juvenile picked the wrong gun to play with Wednesday, according to a LaGrange Police Department press release.

The three teens were detained Wednesday at about 3 a.m. after several shots were fired on Fulton Street. Davon Osborn, 17, and the juvenile were charged with reckless conduct before the three were taken into custody.

Later, police discovered the shotgun belonged to a Troup County Sheriff's deputy, who found his gun missing from his car while at Woodland Trail Apartments.

Due to this discovery, Osborn and 17-year-old Corey Perkins were charged with four entering autos, burglary and interference with government property. Osborn was charged with an additional burglary, entering auto and criminal trespass for incidents "that occurred inside the county."

No explanation was given as to why Osborn and Perkins were charged with more than one entering auto. No items were listed as stolen from additional cars.
