Monica Avila 'threatened her daughter's bullies with a gun outside middle school'

A mother is accused of driving to a middle school and threatening several teenage students with a gun who she thought were bullying her daughter.

Monica Avila, 34, from Denver, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with four counts of menacing and one count of possession of a weapon on school grounds.

Police say she confronted four students aged 14 and 15 outside Lake Middle School last Thursday and started brandishing the weapon in the middle of the argument.
