COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — A woman was arrested Monday after threatening to “shoot someone” outside a Columbus elementary school, police said.
Columbus police responded to Weinland Park Elementary School on the 200 block of East 7th Avenue about 3:20 p.m. on a report of a woman, later identified as Shantel Mayle, 32, outside the school with a gun.
Mayle was found in her Chevrolet Suburban parked on school grounds, police said. When officers approached, she rolled up her car’s window and refused to speak with them.
Mayle was taken from her car and detained by police. Officers then say they found a loaded pistol in the car’s center console.
Mayle is not allowed to carry a firearm because she is a convicted felon, police said.
Mayle is charged with improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle. More charges may be filed as the investigation into the incident continues.
