HERRIN — A southern Illinois mother speaks out after a 12-year-old girl reportedly threatened her daughter with a gun, which appears to have been a toy.

Nicole Lacey is calling for the suspect to be held accountable as the investigation heads toward the Williamson County State’s Attorney’s office.

“My daughter is 13 years old and I have never been more terrified to send her anywhere,” Lacey said. “I don’t care if it was a fake gun, a real gun, the terror that she inflicted in my child that night was real.”
