Police: Teen threatened to shoot mother

A teen from Laurel Court was jailed after police said he threatened to shoot his mother after she complained about him bringing a gun into the house.

Marquise King, 18, was arrested Monday and held on $250,000 bond.

Officers responded to the residence at 6:47 p.m. on a threatening complaint. According to witnesses, King threatened to shoot his mother after she confronted him about having a firearm in the house when she has young children.

After the threat, the woman hid in a closet and called 911.

Police arrived and detained King without incident and, after getting consent to search the house, recovered a .357 Magnum handgun, a box of .38-caliber bullets, five .357-caliber bullets and one .22-caliber round.

King was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, threatening, reckless endangerment and two counts of risk of injury to a minor.
