JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The outline of guns in orange spray paint found on an air conditioner unit at Jonesboro Fire Station #3 has some neighbors in the area concerned.

"If they pick up a gun thinking it's fake...that could be a serious problem," Kreccia Deason said.

Deason, a mother of six, lives near the fire station on Brazos Street.

Right now, the Jonesboro Police Department is investigating. Officer Bryan Bailey stated in his report that it looked like two different guns were painted.

Right now, there are no suspects and it's unknown if actual guns were spray painted to look like toy guns.

However, Deason wants whoever did this to know that it's no joke.

"We got kids here that we got to raise and things can happen. It's very serious when it comes to this," Deason said.

If you have information about the case, contact Crimestoppers anonymously at 935-STOP.
