Denton police took a report from a visibly shaken woman who said another woman followed her along Teasley Lane and pointed a gun at her, according to a police report.

The woman called police around 12:19 p.m. in the 1000 block of Dallas Drive to report a person with a gun. She said a woman in another vehicle followed her as she drove north on Teasley Lane approaching Interstate 35E.

The report says the other woman pulled up next to her at the intersection of Teasley and Dallas Drive where she started screaming and throwing things at her vehicle. As they kept driving, the caller told police the other woman pulled up in front of her and started to brake check her.

The caller pulled over to get away from the other woman, but she followed. According to the report, when the caller got out of the vehicle, the other woman pulled out a gun and threatened to shoot her before leaving. The two women did not know each other.

Denton polices spokesperson Amy Cunningham said officers are trying to find out if there’s surveillance footage in the area where the women stopped.
