MARSHALL, TX (KLTV) -

Police have charged a woman they believe intentionally crashed her car into an elementary school building.

Anterra Gatson, 30, of Marshall is charged with felony criminal mischief and attempted aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

About 12:30 p.m. on April 11, Marshall Police Department officers responded to Price T. Young Elementary School where a vehicle had crashed into a classroom.

The driver was later identified as Gatson.

Gatson was transported to the hospital with what police say were non-life threatening injuries. There was extensive damage to the building but no students or staff were injured.

"As a result of a joint investigation between MISD PD and MPD, it is believed that Gatson intentionally crashed her car into the building," the police department said in a Friday news release.
