Police: Woman charged with fatally shooting 17-year-old son

Police say a Maryland woman shot and killed her 17-year-old son during an argument.

Prince George's County Police said in a statement Friday that officers responding to a report of a shooting Thursday night found the teen suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital, where police say he was pronounced dead.

Police say their preliminary investigation reveals that 48-year-old Angelique Chase of Clinton and her son, 17-year-old Christopher Perry were arguing before the shooting. Police say Chase, who was arrested at the scene, admitted her involvement.

Chase has been charged with second-degree murder and assault. She is being held without bond.
