Monica Avila, 34, from Utah was arrested Thursday morning- one day before the Sandy Hook Massacre- after she threatened several teenage girls with a semiautomatic handgun.

She allegedly went to the school to intimidate several girls that were bullying her daughter. She parked her car near the school and confronted the girls while still in the car. She exposed the handgun to the girls saying “look what I have”.

The girls ran to the adults and the police soon arrived on the scene. They searched her car and arrested her after finding the gun. Avila is currently in Denver County jail with a bail set at $50,000.
