    A woman who entered a Kardashian-owned store Thursday was arrested after allegedly threatening employees with a handgun and threatening death to the famous family while being armed with a machete.

    The incident began at the DASH store in West Hollywood around 11:32 a.m., the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's West Hollywood station said.

    The woman pointed a handgun at an employee after shouting, "Stay away from Cuba," then knocked things off the counter before walking out of the store, police said.

    Television cameras covering the initial incident were rolling as the woman returned around 1:25 p.m. holding what appeared to be a machete and incoherently shouting profanities.

    "The Kardashians will be executed if they step on communist territory," she shouted. "They'll be f-----g killed. Don't mess with the Castro family."

    When someone shouted at her to "shut up," she shouted back, "Do you want to f-----g get stabbed?"

    "And this is on the cusp of the president speaking at the U.N.," the woman said before wedging the machete between the store's door and frame, leaving it behind as she walked away toward La Cienega Boulevard.

    The woman was later arrested at her home. It was not immediately clear if she had an attorney.
