Nashville Crime Stoppers Metro police are working to locate a van containing two men, one of whom reportedly pointed a gun at two Cole Elementary School students as they walked on Colemont Drive in Antioch between 7:30 and 7:45 a.m. Friday.

The students were walking with three of their friends when they said a white or silver-colored van with tinted windows and a company logo on the side approached.

The students said that the passenger in the van, who was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a black mask, pointed a pistol at two girls, ages seven and eight, and exclaimed, "Trick or Treat."

The students ran to one of their homes on Gillespie Drive. A parent contacted police.

No one was injured.

The van, which was described as having ladders on the top, was last seen traveling on Colemont Drive.

Anyone with information on the van is urged to contact Metro detectives at 615-862-7744 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.

Citizens can also send an electronic tip to Crime Stoppers by texting the word "CASH" along with their message to 274637 (CRIMES) or online.
