A driver threatened to shoot a crossing guard and a child outside a  Jewish day school in Crown Heights, New York.

The school crossing guard, 55, had asked the driver to move his car, which was blocking the sidewalk outside the Beth Rivkah Elementary School.

The driver then asked the guard: “Why are you protecting the Jewish girls?” and displayed his gun, the New York Police Department told local media. The driver then allegedly threatened the guard and the student saying: “I’ll shoot you both.”

The incident took place on Monday afternoon. Police are looking for the driver of the car.
