KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) — A woman was taken into custody after brandishing a gun in a school drop-off line in KCK.
According to the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department, the incident happened in the morning outside Junction Elementary School in the Turner School District.
They said the suspect had dropped a student off, was in a hurry, and cut off someone else’s vehicle.
A school bus was in the area at the time and came to a stop. When it did, the suspect’s vehicle stopped.
