Blotter: Report: Kids say they were threatened at gunpoint

Comments () A Text Size

A mother of four children called Denton police Wednesday afternoon when three of her children alleged someone pointed a gun at them while they were at a friend’s house in the 400 block of Casie Street.

Officer Ryan Grelle, spokesman for the department, said the three younger children said their friend’s mother allegedly pointed what they believe was a handgun at them.

They said she threatened to shoot them if they didn’t leave her residence, according to police reports.

At the time of the report, police were unsure whether the woman owns a handgun. The oldest of the four children was inside the residence as well, but did not witness the incident, police say.
