CLEVELAND– Police arrested a woman who they claim threatened to ‘shoot up’ her son’s school.

Cleveland police said they responded to Nathan Hale Elementary School on Feb. 21 and found Aukenia Mason sitting in a vehicle outside the school.

A teacher at the school told police he had received several calls from Mason, because she was upset over the treatment of her son.

The teacher told police Mason’s son refused to do a writing assignment, so he was removed from the class until the assignment was completed.

During the phone conversation, the teacher claimed Mason said, “I’m going to kick your a**” and “I’m going to shoot your a**.”

The school’s secretary told police that Mason called her and said, “I’m going to shoot up the building. They don’t never check me when I come in there. I can do what I want.”

When the assistant principal called Mason back, Mason reportedly told her, “You’re going to get yours. You suspended my son for no reason.”

Mason was arrested on charges of inducing panic, aggravated menacing and criminal activity on school property.

She has since been indicted on charges of inducing panic and telecommunications harassment.
