    Heather Love, 36, was arrested and charged with four counts of child abuse, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana concentrate, and possession of a handgun by a prohibited person.

    The 13-year-old boy was taken into custody and charged with terroristic threats regarding the threat at Horizon Middle School. He was placed in the custody of Health and Human Services.

    Two other juveniles who were located in the residence face no charges. The city said the four counts of child abuse against Love stem from the fact that she has four children who live in the home who were exposed to the drug abuse in the home.
