The Mother of Robb Elementary school shooter, who fatally shot 19 students and two teachers in May, faces charges for allegedly threatening to kill a man Oklahoma City police reported.
Adriana Martínez Reyes, 40, was arrested and charged on January 4 with threatening to commit an act of violence, as well as assault on Wednesday after an incident of domestic violence.the police said.
The arrest marks the second time this month that police have responded to the Oklahoma home where the mother of 18-year-old Salvador Ramos now resides.
According to a police report obtained by The Daily Beast, Oklahoma City police were first dispatched to the Reyes home on New Year’s Day after receiving a report of a domestic violence incident.
Although the officers ended up leaving without arresting Reyes or the unidentified man who also lived in the home, authorities were called just three days later, around 9:56 a.m., and the man alleged that Reyes had “threatened to kill him.” ”.
The Man said Reyes “got mad at him and told him before he moved out of this house that he’s going to kill him,” noted the police report, adding that “he thinks she’s going to kill him in his sleep and he’s terrified.”
Once officers arrived at the home, Reyes “came out and started yelling” at the man, who was also with another witness, according to the report.
After Reyes was arrested, she denied threatening the man violently, despite witnesses corroborating the claims.
Reyes was still being held on $1,000 bond at the Oklahoma County Detention Center as of Friday afternoon, and it was not immediately clear if she has retained an attorney.
However, the Oklahoma arrest is not the first time Reyes has faced legal trouble.
According to the Uvalde Leader-News, Reyes was arrested for trespassing and an old warrant for operating a vehicle without a valid license in June.
The arrest came just a month after his teenage son killed 21 people with a semi-automatic rifle on May 24, 2022.
At the time of the massacre, which is the third deadliest school shooting in US history, the teen was living with his grandmother.
The 66-year-old grandmother, who was shot in the face before Salvador headed to the Texas elementary school, was among the 17 people who were also injured.
“I have no words to say, I don’t know what I was thinking,” Reyes told Televisa after the shooting. “He had his reasons for doing what he did. Please don’t judge him. I just want the innocent children who died to forgive me. Forgive me, forgive my son. I know he had his reasons.”
