Yonkers teen accused of carrying loaded handgun

A Yonkers teenager was arrested this week for allegedly carrying a loaded handgun.



Omaiah Thompson, 18, was arrested after a traffic stop in Mount Vernon Wednesday. Police say they found a loaded .40 caliber handgun.



Thompson pleaded guilty in September to a shooting in a domestic violence incident. She has not yet been sentenced in that case.



The teen is being held at Westchester County Jail.
