Woman, 83, arrested after pointing gun at officer

YORKTOWN, Ind. — Central Indiana police say an 83-year-old woman who pointed a handgun at a police officer during a confrontation is lucky the officer showed restraint and didn’t shoot her.

Yorktown police Chief Todd St. John says officer Blake Barnard would have been “fully justified” if he had opened fire on Loraine Greer when she pointed a gun at him Wednesday outside a business.

He tells The Star Press the officer showed “tremendous restraint” in not shooting Greer, who was arrested faces preliminary charges of pointing a firearm, intimidation with a deadly weapon and criminal mischief.

Court documents say officers were called to a tool and die business after Greer allegedly threatened to shoot its owner.
