Pasadena ISD: Mother pulls gun on high school student

HOUSTON - A mother pulled a gun on a female student after the student got into a fight with her daughter, according to the Pasadena Independent School District. 

PISD said the two students were fighting at a park across the street from Pasadena High School Tuesday when Viridiana Alvarez took out a gun. Pasadena ISD police broke up the fight before anyone was seriously injured.

Hours after the fight, cellphone video and pictures surfaced of the altercation that appeared to show Alvarez pointing a gun at the teen's head.  Alvarez was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. 

"I don't think a grown woman should be taking a gun where kids are," said the victim's grandmother. "I think it's wrong."

During her first appearance in court Alvarez, 33, told the judge that she wasn't planning to shoot the girl with the pistol, only "scare her."   Alvarez's family told KPRC2 that the gun was not loaded.

"Yeah but still," said the victim's grandmother.  "It's not right to take a gun."

A letter was sent out to the district's parents on Wednesday regarding the incident. 

Alvarez is in the Harris County Jail.  He bond is $35,000.
