ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Police in Albuquerque say they’ve arrested a woman who was standing in front of a school with a rifle, which a school district official later said turned out to be a BB gun.

The woman’s presence Friday outside Bel Air Elementary had prompted lockdowns at that school and another school nearby, but those lockdowns were lifted once the unidentified was taken into custody.

Police announced that the woman had been taken into custody in a Twitter posting that referred to a “rifle.”

But Albuquerque Public Schools officials later said the woman was holding what was determined to be a BB gun.

Police say 39-year-old Joanna Davidson has been booked into jail on suspicion of two counts of interference with the educational process, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia.
