On Sunday, 31-year-old mother of two and Navy Veteran Anna Conkey walked into her church with her baby in one hand and a gun in the other, and threatened to blow up the church.
One witness recalled the incident saying that Conkey was “saying craziness about the rapture not being real and everyone going to hell.”
Before anything could happen, however, several congregants were able to tackle the mother of two to the ground.
David Michael Miller who was a part of the team that disarmed the woman, also noted that she was acting erratically.
According to the Christian Post, Miller said, “She was being very apprehensive, pointing the gun at them, pointing the gun at her baby, saying ‘Don’t come closer, don’t come any closer.”
According to police, no one was injured in the scuffle and police later found that the gun Coney was holding was not loaded. A bomb unit also determined that there were no explosives in the area.
According to NBC 7, just before the incident took place, the news outlet received a tip from an account bearing the same namesake as Conkey.
