A 12-year-old Kansas girl was arrested – as in, hauled out of school in handcuffs, charged with a crime, and was handed a court date – for making a “finger gun” and pointing it at fellow students.

According to the Kansas City Star, police in Overland Park “hauled her out of school in handcuffs, arrested her and charged the child with a felony for threatening” after the middle-schooler pointed the “finger gun” at other students before pointing it at herself.

Johnson County District Court documents obtained by the Kansas City Star claim the child “unlawfully and feloniously communicated a threat to commit violence, with the intent to place another, in fear, or with the intent to cause the evacuation, lock down or disruption in regular, ongoing activities.”

According to the news outlet, the whole thing started when a fellow student asked the girl “if she could kill five people in the class, who would they be?” The girl then allegedly pointed her fingers in the shape of a gun at several other students in the class. The teacher sent her to the principal’s office, where the school resource officer recommended she be arrested.

She was eventually turned over to her mother and hearing in the Juvenile Division of the District Court of Johnson County is scheduled for Tuesday. The child’s family was reportedly told that if convicted of a felony, she could face up to a year ina juvenile detention center.
