A woman has been filmed holding a black woman and her 15-year-old daughter at gunpoint in a horrifying confrontation leaving them fearing for their life.
A shocking video, taken by the victim, shows a white woman pointing a pistol at Takelia Hill and her 15-year-old daughter Makayla at a parking lot outside an Oakland County Chipotle restaurant in Orion Township, Michigan.
The woman was subsequently arrested.
According to Hill, her daughter was allegedly bumped into by the woman as they were entering the fast food restaurant at around 8pm.
Makayla asked for an apology from the woman, who began shouting at her, she alleges.

Speaking to The Detroit News, Makayla said: ‘Before I could walk into Chipotle, this woman was coming out and I had moved out the way so she can walk out.
‘She bumped me and I said, ‘Excuse you.’ And then she started cussing me out and saying things like I was invading her personal space.’
The teenager called her mother over. ‘I walked up on the woman yelling at my daughter,’ Hill said.

‘She couldn’t see me because her back was to me, but she was in my daughter’s face.’
The later part of the altercation, which had moved to the restaurant parking lot, was then caught on camera.
Hill and her daughter can be seen arguing with the woman, whose identity remains unknown, about how she had allegedly bumped into the daughter.
‘She did something wrong, she needs to apologize,’ Hill can be heard saying.
‘You’re blocking me from getting in my car,’ the woman replies.
The driver of the car then proceeds to get out and open the door for the woman to get in as Hill and her daughter accuse her of being ‘ignorant’ and a ‘dumb a** b****’.
The two women then implore the man to ‘do something’, to which he replies: ‘Who the f*** do you two think you are? You called her names, she did nothing to you.’
As the altercation continues, the woman says from the passenger seat of the car: ‘You can’t just walk around calling white people racist. This is not that type of world. White people aren’t racist, no one is racist.
As Hill continues to ask the woman why she bumped her daughter, she responds: ‘I care about you and I’m sorry if you’ve had an incident where someone has made you feel like that.’
The car window is then wound up and the pair go to drive away.
Hill is then seen behind the car and appears to punch the vehicle’s back window. It is unclear from the video how Hill came to be behind the car.
According to Hill, she thought the driver of the car with the woman inside was attempting to hit them so she knocked on the back window of his SUV to stop him, The Detroit News reported.
The pair then emerge from the vehicle and the woman points a gun at her.
In the clip, she is heard saying: ‘Get away!’
The victim then replied: ‘She got the gun on me, she was about to hit me with the car. Call them, get the license plate. Get the license plate now! Cause you were about to hit me with the car?’
In the clip, the woman holding the firearm is heard saying: ‘Get away!’. She then walked back to the car and the pair drove away from the scene (right). The woman was later arrested by police.
The woman then said: ‘Don’t you f***ing jump behind my car!’, shouting repeatedly: ‘Get the f*** back!’ pointing the gun straight at the victim.
She then walked back to the car and the pair drove away from the scene.
The woman was later arrested by police.
Hill said her other two daughters were in the car at the time of the altercation, which has left the family traumatized.
The video was posted to Twitter with the words: ‘This happened today in Auburn Hills, MI. Another Karen…’
The footage has since gained over 4.5 million views, sending shockwaves across the internet.
It is not known if the woman was charged with any offences.
Auburn Hills Police department confirmed the incident happened in Orion Township.
The incident comes as the concept of a ‘Karen’ has come to denote someone who represents white entitlement amid the U.S. Black Lives Matter protests.
In the past month several months the nickname has taken off, after multiple videos of white women throwing tantrums in public.
One of the first ‘Karen’ incidents was in Central Park when Amy Cooper (pictured) called the cops on black birdwatcher Christian Cooper, alleging that he was threatening her, when all he’d asked her was to do was put her dog on a leash
One of the original ‘Karen’ videos involved white woman Amy Cooper calling the police on Christian Cooper, a black birdwatcher in Central Park, claiming he was threatening her when he had simply asked her to put her dog on a leash.
Christian Cooper was never charged but he has since described the footage as proof of how quickly a white person can be to make a false or overzealous accusation against a black person to law enforcement.
In light of police brutality and systemic racism within law enforcement, such false accusations, he said, can be particularly dangerous.
In another example, a white New Jersey woman was dubbed ‘Permit Karen’ for calling the police on her black neighbors after she allegedly repeatedly harassed them about needing a permit to install a patio in their backyard.
Fareed Nassor Hayat, an attorney and law professor at the City University of New York, and his wife Norrinda filmed the moment their neighbor, Susan Schulz, stormed their front lawn and called the police on them.
The couple said Schulz walked onto their property three times in 30 minutes to ask if they had a permit to install a stone patio in their backyard, on the other side of the fence from her yard
