DENVER (KDVR) – Denver police briefly held a mom, her boyfriend and her four kids at gunpoint last month, believing they were driving a stolen car, but the car was actually their own.
“It is so easy for something like this to happen,” said Marissa Vinson, who told the Problem Solvers she was terrified to be separated from her children for a few moments while police pointed a gun in her direction.
Vinson said she was worried during the ordeal.
“(My kids) are going to scream, ‘Mom!’ and jump out the window, and somebody’s going to get shot,” she said. “Or, my kids are not going to make it out of this situation.”
