A woman in Nevada, who allegedly wore a pickaxe as she yelled threats at the playground where hundreds of children were playing has been arrested.

Kisstal Killough, 33, was allegedly carrying hand tools and shouting threats as they climbed a chain link fence around noon on Tuesday at the Tom Williams elementary School playground in the North of Las Vegas, Fox 5 Las Vegas reported.

A public information officer with the North Las Vegas Police Department said that there were 200 children on the playground during the incident, in which Killough was shouting that she was going to murder everyone, according to KSNV.

When the officials allegedly came a minute later, Killough jumped off the fence, dropped the pickaxe and gave quiet.

Killough, according to the police, was mentally ill during the incident may be under the influence of drugs.

In a letter sent home to the parents, head of school Kristie Cole said Killough “not harm anyone or cause damage to the school,” and was reported to the police after the staff and the students noticed her.

Arrest records show Killough was taken into custody on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, negligence, nuisance, and loitering on school property.
