A group of kids say a man used racial slurs, and pulled a gun on them in Lexington Thursday night. 

While the kids begged for mercy, one recorded the whole thing.

"He said Y'all black hood rats get out of my f'n neighborhood," said Antonique Chenault, 12-years-old.

Kids say the man said I've got something for you, and went to his car.

"He pulled out his gun, and then he cocked it.  And the bullet was on the side of the sidewalk," said Antonique.

This happened on Smugglers Notch Drive.  The kids say the man waved the gun around at a lot of kids.  Police arrested 41-year-old Timothy Hill, and charged him with wanton endangerment.

"It made me so angry, because how can you come home from a bad day, and take it out on somebody else," said Antonique.

"They're going to remember that for the rest of their life.  My little brother woke up at 2 AM, and said that somebody's, he's got the gun, he's got the gun, he's going to shoot me, he's going to shoot me, and that's harsh," said Antonio Chenault.

Antonio says he started recording, because he wanted to make sure he had evidence.  Chenault says he wants to testify against Hill.

"While the kids begged for mercy"... C'mon, son -- way to keep it unbiased! And that is the most useless cellphone footage I've ever seen. Can't even tell which person's supposed to be the "gunman".
