Woman holding baby and a gun tackled after threatening church on Easter
Conkey allegedly pointed the gun at the baby at one point.
Worshipers at a San Diego church tackled a woman carrying a gun and a 10 month-old baby, after she stormed into the church and threatened to blow it up on Easter Sunday, according to CNN.

Anna Conkey entered the non-denominational Tsidkenu Church during Easter services and began waving the gun and shouting about the rapture and martyrs and blowing up the church, according to KSWB news.

"She was saying stuff that was kind of delusional. I was more worried about getting my family out of there," churchgoer Ronald Farmer said.

Conkey allegedly pointed the gun at the baby at one point.

"Some of the congregation members rushed the female before anything could happen and took her into custody, took the gun and the child away from her and held her until the police officers could arrive,” said police Lt. Christian Sharp, according to CNN.

Officers quickly arrived on scene and arrested Conkey. No one was injured in the incident. The infant and Conkey's 5 year-old daughter were placed in Child Services.
