Teacher Arrested in School Gun Scare: Police

A Brooklyn high school teacher has been arrested after she allegedly set off a gun scare at her school Wednesday, police say.

Vilma Latalladi, 53, walked through security at Leon M. Goldstein High School carrying an air rifle and a toy gun, according to police.

The English teacher told police she'd brought the guns in for some sort of classroom project, a law enforcement source said. 

Latalladi has been charged with prohibited use of a weapon and unlawful possession of a weapon on school grounds.

The Department of Education says it's investigating.
