Deer Park parent pulls gun in drop off line

A mother who was angry while in traffic pulled a gun on another mom in front of the Deer Park Elementary school on Thursday.

DEER PARK, Texas – There was a scary situation outside Deer Park Elementary Thursday after one mom pulled a gun on another in the drop-off line.

This happened in the morning as parents were dropping their kids off at school, according to school officials.

Apparently the gun was pulled after an altercation escalated, and kids were still inside both vehicles.

No one was injured in the incident and the weapon was not fired.

“Breaks my heart because they are so impressionable at this point when is this going to do for them when they have a conflict,” Jeff Wylin, a neighbor said. “Is that the first resolution they are going to think of, I'll pull a gun and brandish a gun? Not good.”

"People should be watching what they say in front of their children," said Judy Fields, as she was walking her granddaughter home from school. "Can you imagine a child seeing that?"

It is illegal to carry a weapon on a school’s campus.

Deer Park police were called to the scene but did not make any arrests. The Harris County District Attorney's Office says it hasn't decided on whether either mother will be charged.
