She was wanted in the Nov. 24 dispute at the store located in the 11100 block of Leopard Street, in the Annaville neighborhood, police said in a Facebook post.

The woman pointed a handgun at others and threatened to shoot them over a parking space on the day before Thanksgiving, police said. The incident was caught on camera and shared on social media pages, such as Reddit.

The Reddit post claims that she pointed the weapon at a car with a woman and her 6-month-old baby inside.
