LENEXA, Kan. (AP) _ Lenexa police say a quick-thinking 11-year-old boy escaped an attempted abduction.

Police say the boy was riding his bicycle Sunday afternoon when a white car drove past slowly and turned around. The boy says a passenger in the car pointed a gun at him and told him to get into the car.

Lenexa police officer Dan Friesen says in a news release that the boy knew he couldn't get into the car under any circumstances. So he ran to a nearby liquor store, and police were called.

The vehicle was a dirty, white four-door passenger car of an unknown make. The man with the gun was white with a dark complexion, with a small amount of facial hair. The boy didn't get a look at the driver.
