Lanessa L. Lattimore, 21, attempted to cut in front of a line of “several hundred shoppers” at a Toys R Us store in Madison, Wisconsin, on Thursday, according to a Madison police report. Although, police arrested Lattimore, no gun was found at the scene.
“Everybody was cutting in line. But there was one girl who was threatening me, so I told her that I’d shoot her,” Lattimore told CNN. “I’m not a violent person, but police charged me with disorderly conduct.”Â She then added, “I just wanted to get my daughter the toy that she wanted for Christmas, which probably won’t be there when I go today.”
The store opened at 10 p.m. Thursday for Black Friday shopping, which often draws huge lines of customers searching for bargain deals during what is traditionally viewed as the start of the Christmas shopping season.
“We have 600 stores across the country and we take security very seriously,” said Toys R Us spokeswoman Kathleen Waugh. “Our people go through training, we have police nearby, and we only let a certain number of people into our stores. This is an isolated incident.”
