MOBILE, Ala. (TCD) -- A 53-year-old woman faces a murder charge after she allegedly shot and killed her teenage son this week.
According to WKRG-TV, on Monday, Oct. 3, Mobile Police went to a home on the 2000 block of Jones Lane, where they found a 13-year-old boy suffering from a gunshot wound to the back. He was reportedly transported to a nearby hospital, where he died.
WALA-TV identified the victim as Ja’mil Autry. Mobile Police reportedly initially thought Ja’mil was shot in the back, but investigators are now saying the bullet hit him in the chest.
Mobile County Assistant District Attorney Lauren Walsh told WALA, "Evidence indicates that he would have been sleeping at the time."
Video footage taken by WKRG shows police escorting Agee out of her house in a wheelchair and yelling and crying at reporters asking her questions.
WALA reports Agee was not in the wheelchair when the shooting reportedly occurred, but she was escorted to the police car in it.
Agee’s criminal history reportedly dates back to the 1990s, and police have been called to her home 34 times in the last two years. A judge denied bond for her Thursday, Oct. 6
Agee’s family, however, believes the shooting was "an accident," according to WKRG, adding, "She loved him. She really did."
