Mother Fires Into Crowd To Break Up Fight Kills Her Teenage Son


motherA gun-wielding mother has been arrested after allegedly firing into a crowd of people outside an apartment complex in a bid to break up a fight – only for the bullet to hit and kill her teenage son.

Latoya Tilson, 33, took out a .25-caliber handgun and fired several times into the feuding crowd in College Park, Georgia, on Saturday night after she was hit in the face by someone, police said.

But while one bullet struck a 17-year-old boy in the buttocks, another hit Tilson’s 15-year-old son, Pierre, in the head. Pierre had apparently been trying to protect his sister, 13, from the other boy.

When first responders arrived at the scene, the teenager was lying unconscious on the floor. He was not breathing and a bullet was lodged in his head. His mother had fled the scene, it is alleged.

Pierre was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to the back of his head. He remained in intensive care for two days, but despite medics’ best efforts, he died on Monday.
