Mom fatally shot in front of 8-year-old son on Mother's Day

Authorities say a Kentucky woman was fatally shot on Mother's Day in front of her 8-year-old son, who had yet to give her the necklace he had bought for her.

Louisville Metro Police Department Lt. Todd Kessinger tells news outlets that the boy was present when 27-year-old Angelina Pressley was shot multiple times in the parking lot of her apartment complex early Sunday. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have not named a suspect in the slaying, which occurred in the city's Okolona neighborhood.

Kessinger says the boy told investigators he was excited to give his mother the necklace to celebrate Mother's Day.
