MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A mother is behind bars after allegedly bringing a gun to a local Memphis school.

The incident happened at Kipp Memphis Collegiate High School on Howell Avenue on Aug. 31.

A large fight broke out during dismissal around 3:15, according to an affidavit.

The principal and assistant principal were attempting to separate the students when a student’s mother got out of her car and pulled a gun from her purse, records show.

The mother, identified as Armanda Flowers, “chambered a round and began to wave the weapon” back and forth toward the ground, according to the affidavit.

Flowers reportedly said, “Y’all better stop or I’ll start shooting.”

Flowers was standing near a large group of students at the time of the incident.

She’s charged with two counts of aggravated assault and carrying a weapon on school property.
