COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a 30-year-old woman who had a gun outside a Charleston private school last year was committed to a prison psychiatric hospital.

U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles said Thursday that Alice Boland will stay at the hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, until a court determines her mental condition doesn’t threaten others.

Nettles says Boland was committed after a psychiatric examination. He says he can’t release any additional information.

Authorities say Boland pulled the gun on employees at Ashley Hall during afternoon carpool pickup in February 2013 and pulled the trigger. The gun didn’t fire because she had loaded it wrong and there were no bullets in the chamber.

Boland bought the gun despite a plea of not guilty by reason of mental incompetence to threatening to kill the president.
