TULSA, Oklahoma -

A Tulsa woman was arrested after police say she fired a gun outside a busy Tulsa movie theater. Mary Elizabeth Hill was booked into jail early Monday morning, February 19, on complaints of reckless handling of a firearm, possession of a firearm and shooting a firearm in public.

An arrest report states Hill told police she fired a gun into the air at the Cinemark movie theater at 71st and Highway 169. She also admitted she doesn't have a license to carry the gun, records show.

The arresting officer said the theater was heavily populated at the time. It doesn't give any information about why the 50-year-old woman might have fired into the air only that she left the scene in a Nissan Juke.

Hill quickly bonded out of jail.

Hill spoke with News On 6's Lori Fullbright and told her she fired one round because she saw two men beating up a teenage girl and thought they were going to kill her. She spoke with Lori and we'll have her full story Tuesday at 6.
