story-karenALMA — A woman threatening to shoot her boyfriend with a rifle early Sunday morning was arrested when Alma Police Department and Bacon County Sheriff’s Office personnel arrived and took her into custody, said Alma Police Chief Michael Leslie.
Karen Story, 51, pointed a small caliber rifle at her boyfriend and threatened to shoot him, said Leslie. She was arrested for terroristic threats and acts, pointing a gun at a person and two counts of possession of a gun by a convicted felon, said Leslie.
“Shortly after midnight Sunday, the Alma Police Department received a call to a residence on East 7th Street regarding a woman threatening to shoot her boyfriend,” said Leslie. “As officers from APD and the Bacon County Sheriff’s Office arrived on scene, officers discovered Karen Story had pointed a small caliber rifle at her boyfriend (and was) threatening to shoot him. Story locked herself inside of the residence, refusing to allow officers inside; officers could see and hear Story manipulating a rifle.”
Leslie said after several minutes passed, officers managed to talk Story into opening the door, and surrendering. Story was taken into custody without further incident.
Officers searched the home and found two rifles and ammunition concealed beneath a comforter in a bedroom adjacent to the front door, said Leslie.
The chief said police previously arrested Story on Oct. 8 for obstruction of a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct after responding to a call about a woman (Story) lying on the ground near the same East 7th Street location, an incident which resulted from a combination of consumption of alcoholic beverages and pain killers.
