HOUSTON, TX (KPRC/WCMH) — A video making the rounds on social media shows the mother of a 13-year-old girl pull out what looks like a real gun and point it at another girl her daughter was arguing with.
Chade Lockett, the mother in the video, said it was a BB gun and tells NBC affiliate KPRC-TV the video doesn’t show the whole story. She claims she needed the BB gun to defend herself and her daughter.
“I went back to the car to get the BB gun when I saw they had knives. It was either the crowbar or the BB gun. I chose the BB gun. It looked realistic. It was 15 of them and two of us,” Lockett said. “When I see knives … what are you going to do? I’m going to defend myself and my daughter.”
Tracy McIntyre is the grandmother of the other daughter seen in the fight. She’s filed a report with Houston police.
“Kids I understand they are going to fight, but I want justice for the mother for what she did to my granddaughter,” McIntyre said.
