Babysitter saves 5-year old boy from potential shooter

A babysitter was watching a 5-year old boy near Lakeway, Texas, when a woman burst into the home with a .38 pistol, stating that she wanted to kill the boy and his parents because they were the "antichrist." But the babysitter managed to get the gun away from the woman and scare her away.

From the article:
Cops say that the 47-year-old Straley went into her neighbor’s home on Aria Drive on January 27 and confronted the child’s babysitter with a .38 caliber pistol. The boy’s parents weren’t home. Straley threatened the babysitter with the pistol and demanded that she tell her where the boy’s mother was.
But the quick thinking and brave babysitter caught the crazed woman off guard and jumped up and grabbed the gun from Straley’s hand. Straley took off on foot to another neighbor’s home where she reportedly spilled the beans about her plot to kill the family.
Lakeway police were called. Cops say she later confessed the bizarre plot to them as well. 
A neighbor called into KLBJ’s Jeff Ward Show and said that Straley was a friend of the boy’s family. She also told Ward that Straley had been taken to Fort Worth by her family.
Police have now charged her with burglary, but there is a problem. They don’t know where Straley is. An arrest warrant has been issued.
Now that's a great babysitter!!
