Mercedees Yvette Scott

An Abilene woman is accused of going live on Facebook while holding a gun and threatening to kill her husband and his two children.

Merecedees Yvette Scott, 26, was arrested Thursday and charged with false report/alarm.

Staff at Ortiz Elementary saw Scott's Facebook Live and called police.

One of the children attends Ortiz.

Police say Scott also told some of her other children, before they went to school, that they wouldn't see their siblings anymore.

The only weapon police found at her house was a BB gun.

Abilene ISD said Ortiz was put on lock out. In this case, they brought students in from the playground.

Police said Mann Middle School was also placed on lock out because Scott lives on Vogel Street near the school.
