  • Adriana Martinez Reyes, the mother of the Uvalde shooter, was arrested on Wednesday.

  • A man, which news outlets identified as her boyfriend, claimed she threatened him.

  • Reyes is facing charges, including assault and battery.

The mother of the Uvalde gunman was reportedly arrested in Oklahoma after being accused of threatening to kill her boyfriend.

Adriana Martinez Reyes was taken into custody Wednesday on charges of assault and battery and threatening an act of violence, KWTV-DT and Uvalde Leader-News reported, citing police.

Oklahoma City police responded to a home on Jan. 4 after receiving a report of Reyes threatening a man, the outlets reported. The victim told officers at the scene that he feared the 40-year-old would harm him in his sleep.

Reyes denied his claims. However, Leader-News reported that a witness backed up the man's statement, prompting her arrest. The outlet reported that the victim is working on getting a protection order against her.

Reyes was released from the Oklahoma County Jail at about 2:30 on Friday afternoon, per KWTV-DT.

According to reports, police were called to the couple's address just days before, on Jan. 1, for a domestic incident. During that interaction, she informed officers that her son was behind the May 2022 massacre at Robb Elementary, which left 19 children and two teachers dead, KBTX reported.

Last July, Reyes was confronted by the family of one of the victims killed in the Uvalde attack, according to the reports.

"You have no right to judge my son! No, you don't. No, you don't! No, you don't! No! May God forgive y'all," she was captured yelling in a video obtained by CNN. "I know my son was a coward. You don't think I know that? I know! You don't think I'm carrying all that with me? You don't think I don't know? I know! And I'm sorry!"
