ANDERSON, Ind.– Police arrested an Edgewood Elementary School parent accused of threatening to shoot school staff.
According to court documents filed in the investigation, the school received a call on Feb. 16 around 2 p.m. from Julia Elizabeth Mae Hubble. On the recorded message, Hubble was yelling in an agitated state.

Principal Shafer, a teacher and a para-educator all told authorities they perceive the incident as a threat and are fearful of what Hubble may do.
Police took Hubble into custody on a felony charge of intimidation.
