Woman faces charges after gun found in purse at Wayne County courthouse

A Detroit woman headed into court faces additional charges after Wayne County Sheriff’s deputies discovered a loaded pistol in her purse.

The woman was entering the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice around 9:30 a.m. with her attorney and mother when deputies spotted the gun, Wayne County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Paula Bridges said in a news release.

The woman was in court on charges of first-degree home invasion, larceny in a building and assault with intent to do great bodily harm less then murder. The woman’s name and additional charges were not immediately available Thursday afternoon.

The pistol was not registered, and the woman does not have a concealed pistol license, Bridges said.
