A 35-year-old mother was involved in an altercation with a 32-year-old man while waiting for her food at a fast food restaurant in Illinois, as reported by local news outlets.
The verbal dispute escalated into a physical fight, resulting in Carlishia Hood texting her 14-year-old son to come inside the Maxwell Street Express in Chicago’s West Pullman neighborhood.
As the son approached his mother, the 32-year-old man, identified as Jeremy Brown, began assaulting Hood by repeatedly striking her head, according to sources cited by WFLD.
According to prosecutors, the teenager responded by firing a gun, shooting Brown in the back. Brown attempted to flee the scene, with the boy giving chase under his mother’s instruction to keep shooting until Brown was dead, authorities stated.
Following the shooting, the mother and son left the restaurant together and drove home, as reported by WMAQ. Officers from the Chicago Police Department arrived at the scene of the shooting shortly after 11 p.m. on Sunday, June 18, according to McClatchy News.
Brown was discovered with two gunshot wounds to his back, as confirmed by WFLD. A video obtained by WLS captures the moment the teenager brandished a gun while inside the restaurant and later left the premises accompanied by his mother.
Both Hood and her son have been charged with first-degree murder, with Hood also facing an additional charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, as reported by WKRC.
