A woman who threatened to shoot a woman after a Las Vegas barbecue nearly a year ago has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. 

Jacqueline Moore, 38, was found guilty by a jury of one count of felon in possession of a firearm and one count of felon in possession of ammunition. After the prison sentence, she will have three years of supervised release.

On Oct. 27, 2017, police said Moore got into an altercation with a woman at a barbecue near B Street and Monroe Street in Las Vegas. The woman left the barbecue and Moore followed her to the Elks Lodge parking lot located at 600 W. Owens Ave. Police said Moore confronted the woman and broke her car window and a tail light. She also threatened to shoot the woman.

After Moore fled the scene, an eyewitness called the police who took her into custody a short time later. Officers found a .25 caliber pistol and a single round of .25 caliber ammunition in her purse and vehicle. 

Moore is prohibited from possessing a firearm and ammunition due to her prior felony convictions in Clark County for assault with a deadly weapon and attempted battery with substantial bodily harm.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
