Milwaukee mother accused of pulling gun on her teenage son: ‘I’m gone get you!’
A Milwaukee mother is being accused of pulling a gun on her 16-year-old son outside of his high school on the city’s northwest side.
Shamika Parks, 34, has been charged with possession of a firearm on grounds of a school and disorderly conduct and use of a dangerous weapon. She reportedly was called to the school by the principal after a random locker check turned up tobacco products and a Taser in her 15-year-old daughter’s locker, according to Fox 6 news.
Authorities say that they responded to Carmen High School of Science and Technology on Tuesday, Feb. 19 on a complaint of a subject at the school with a gun. Parks was notified after the principal summoned the teenage girl to the office, Fox 6 news reported.
According to the complaint, Parks arrived at the school around 11:30 a.m.. She was “upset and yelling at (the girl) and asking who the tobacco products belonged to. (The girl) told her that the tobacco products in fact belonged to (the girl’s) brother.”
The brother, who is a year older than his sister, was also brought into the office. When the 16-year-old boy arrived, the complaint said “Parks declared that she needed to leave before she hit (the boy). (The boy) exited the office and Parks followed after.”
The boy was leaving the school when an assistant dean said Parks reached inside of her purse to retrieve a black handgun and a magazine. Parks inserted the magazine into the handgun, approached her son, and allegedly shouted, “I’m gone get you. I’m gone (expletive) you up.”
Before she could prove her point, the 34-year old returned to her car and drove away. She was later arrested.
Parks is due in court for a preliminary hearing on March 15. If convicted she faces up to three and a half years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
