Teenager accused of shooting his mom

A woman is recovering in the hospital, after she was shot by her son.

Lauderdale County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a domestic call at a home on County Road 6 in the Petersville Community.

On the scene, they found Ruby Epps, who had been shot in the shoulder.

Investigators say her 16-year-old son is the shooter.

After a 45 minute search of the area around the home, deputies took the teen into custody.

Neighbors say they're shocked to hear about something like this coming from a normally quiet home.

The victim was taken by air-evac to a local hospital for treatment.

Officials say her injuries are not life threatening.
