Police: Woman kills son trying to break into her apartment

Posted: Updated:

A woman told police she fatally shot her 24-year-old son who was wielding a piece of concrete as he tried to break into her suburban Detroit apartment.

Police in Farmington Hills say the shooting happened about 1:40 a.m. Wednesday at Independence Green apartments. Police say that they had been dispatched to the complex several times starting on Tuesday night to help deal with verbal disputes.

The 43-year-old woman was interviewed by police. She told investigators that she was defending herself and other family members. No one else was hurt.

Police say the Detroit man was shot once and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Names weren't immediately released.

The Oakland County prosecutor's office will review the case to determine whether charges will be brought.
