A 49-year-old Puna woman was arrested Thursday morning in connection with an incident involving a report of a gun near an elementary school in the Hawaiian Beaches subdivision, according to Hawaii County police. 

Puna patrol officers responded to a 7:18 a.m. report that a woman at a residence near Keoneopoko Elementary School was brandishing a firearm and pointing it in the direction of the school. 

No one was injured in the incident. Before the arrest, the school went on lockdown as a precaution.

Police arrested the woman on suspicion of first-degree terroristic threatening. She was taken to the Hilo police cellblock while detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continue the investigation.
