A 78-year-old woman was arrested Friday night after police said she shot her 45-year-old son in the city’s East Germantown section.
Shortly after 9 p.m. in the 5700 block of McMahon Street, police found the man shot once in the abdomen inside a three-story twin that he shares with his mother, said Chief Inspector Scott Small. The victim was transported by police to Einstein. The mother was taken into custody.
Small said investigators were waiting for a search warrant to get the mother’s gun, which she put into a drawer in her second-floor bedroom.
