Woman Charged for Carrying Gun onto School Property

Barquita Williams, 38, was arrested Thursday afternoon for carrying a handgun on school grounds at East Nashville Magnet School, 110 Gallatin Avenue.

Two female students, who had argued earlier in the day, were involved in a physical fight at dismissal after seeing each other in a stairwell. Other students engaged in the altercation.

Parents who were outside to pick up their children heard about the fight and began entering the school, including Williams. After officers broke up the fight, several parents told responding officers that Williams was in possession of a firearm. Williams denied having a gun but consented to a search. A School Resource Officer recovered a loaded nine-millimeter semi-automatic handgun from her person. She was taken into custody. Williams is free on $1,000 bond.
