A Jackson, Miss., couple is furious after they claim police pointed a gun at their 6-year-old son who has special needs.

According to Fox 6, Paul and Angela Thompson Roby and their son were visiting Angela Roby's mother when police arrived looking for Angela Roby's brother, 23-year-old Carneigio Gray, for failure to appear in court on a 2012 paraphernalia charge.

"My son was telling the police officers to stop, to not do that," Angela Roby told the news station. "Please don't hurt his uncle, and that's when the guns were drawn on him and my mother was telling them, 'Hey, please don't point your gun at my grandbaby. Please don't do that.'"

The news station notes that the Robys have contacted the FBI and attorney general's office, but added that they have not filed a complaint with the Police Department.
