Lower Burrell police search for woman, 44, who allegedly threatened boyfriend with gun
Lower Burrell police were looking Friday night for a woman who had allegedly threatened to shoot her boyfriend.
According to Patrolman Steve Cernava, Laina Marie Kos, 44, pointed a Ruger 22-caliber semiautomatic pistol at her boyfriend's head and threatened to “blow his head off.” She didn't fire the weapon and fled in her car.
The two had been arguing in their Wayne Street apartment. At one point, Kos went to the bedroom and retrieved the gun.
The man was not hurt, Cernava said.
Kos was described as white, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing about 170 pounds and with brown hair and brown eyes. She was driving a red Chevrolet Cavalier.
Kos was believed to still be armed with the gun, but police did not consider her dangerous. Lower Burrell police have a warrant for Kos' arrest. She is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and terroristic threats.
Anyone who sees Koss or knows where she might be is asked to contact Lower Burrell police at 724-339-4287 or call 911.
