COVINGTON, La. (AP) — A 75-year-old woman has been accused of bringing a shotgun to her attorney's office and threatening to kill him.

Media outlets report that St. Tammany Parish sheriff's deputies say Patricia Currie, of Mandeville, faces several charges including aggravated assault with a firearm and resisting an officer.

The attorney told deputies he was alone in his Covington office Thursday when he found Currie seated in the lobby with plastic bags on her feet and hands and a towel draped across her lap.

When asked what she needed, the attorney says Currie pulled out a shotgun, telling him she was there to kill him.

The attorney was able to subdue Currie before calling 911. Deputies say Currie was uncooperative and refused to give her name.

It's unclear if she has an attorney.
