9-year-old boy robbed at gunpoint while selling lemonade, police say

Deputies say the teenager wore a camouflage hat and a black shirt when he robbed the boy, and may have stashed a bicycle in the woods which he used to flee the scene.

Law enforcement officers in Union County, N.C., are searching for the teenager who carried out the armed robbery of a child's lemonade stand over the weekend. "That one takes it to a new level".

"It's heart-wrenching. That little boy will never be the same", Smith said. "We also found a black-colored handgun we believe was the handgun that was used, turns out it was a BB gun". He added, "It's pretty low, despicable in my book and I can't believe someone would stoop that low to steal money from him".

But if some may think that the robbery was a discouragement cruel enough to keep Mark off the streets, neighbors have said otherwise.

"We are being resilient and he came out here to sell some lemonade today just to be back at it and taking out time to process everything that happened", said Smith. The money will go toward the purchase of a riding lawnmower. "His eyebrows shot up into his forehead, and he was very excited".

His father said he won't let this stop his son's dreams.
