UPDATE-- Lyon County officials tell News 4 that the mother who allegedly shot her son has not yet been charged with a crime.
The woman remains in the hospital with injuries sustained in the fight.
Her identification will not be released as the investigation is still ongoing.
SILVER SPRINGS, Nev (KRNV & MyNews4.com) - A woman shot and killed her adult son around 9 o’clock Friday night at 8820 Catfish Street in Silver Springs.
Lyon county deputies discovered the man dead with a single gunshot wound after they received a 911 call from a woman saying she shot her son. Investigators say initial indicators point to self-defense.
A neighbor says it makes sense given the mother and son's unhealthy relationship.
“I guess she seemed to be frightened,” says Trish Wake. “And I never seen her outdoors even. And everybody's opinion was yes, he pretty much controlled her life.”
Wake also adds the son caused trouble in the neighborhood.
“He was very secluded. Very strange,” she says. “He's into firearms. He's had the cops called on him several times for discharging firearms.“
Neighbors say they're shocked something like this happened and didn't see or hear any commotion last night.
Investigators are continuing their investigation. And as of yet, they aren't releasing any names and have not clarified whether or not the woman will be charged with a crime.
