Before going to a San Diego church armed with a gun, suspect posted a video to YouTube sharing her delusional thoughts.

According to CNN, A “delusional” woman attacked a San Diego church on Easter Sunday, when she entered the auditorium armed with a firearm while holding a baby.  She threatened to blow up the church.  Members were able to pry the baby from her arms and strip the gun out of her hand.  She was taken to the ground and held for police.

“She was saying stuff that was kind of delusional. I was more worried about getting my family out of there,” churchgoer Ronald Farmer said.

The woman, identified by police as 31-year-old Anna Conkey, walked into the auditorium of Mt. Everest Academy around noon, San Diego Police Officer Dino Delimitros said.

Church leader Ben Wisan told CNN affiliate KSWB that Conkey was familiar to the congregation.  “We know who she was,” he said. “She had been coming on and off for a little bit of time.”

A bomb-sniffing dog found nothing in a sweep of the building and the suspect’s car, police said. Police said her gun was real, but it was not loaded.

Authorities later found the woman’s 5-year-old daughter “healthy and unhurt,” police said. The two children are in protective custody.

Earlier Sunday, San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit announced that the department was stepping up patrols while it monitored the situation in Sri Lanka.
