Woman carrying gun, baby tackled after threatening to blow up San Diego church

Washington: A woman carrying a baby and a handgun threatening to blow up the church during Easter service on Sunday in San Diego, was tackled by the churchgoers, police said. The 31-year-old woman with a to­d­dler and 5-year-old daughter were taken in­to protective custody, CNN reported after qu­o­ting San Diego Police Officer Dino Delimitros.

A search by bomb-sniffing dog found no explosives hidden either in the church building or the suspect’s car, while the woman’s gun was found unloaded, police added. The sermon at the non-denominational Church TsidKenu was about to conclude when the woman walked on stage and waved the handgun making “threats she was going to blow up the church,” police said. As people in the church approached the woman, she pointed her gun at them and the baby, ordering people not to come any closer.
