Woman Shoots Her Own Son

Police authorities told the news media that a Brooklyn woman shoots her own son leading to his fatal death. This happened after the two got into an argument and a feud. However, it is still not clear what they were fighting during that night.

In a published report in 1010 WINS, police authorities found Christopher Jenkins, 28 years old, sitting outside his apartment building on Pacific Street near Utica Avenue in Crown Heights around 9:50 in the evening on October 12. He had a gunshot wound to the side of his head.

Jenkins told the police officers, “I got shot. My mother shot me,” Meanwhile, he was taken to the NYC Health + Hospitals/Kings County, police officers said. He was first listed as a patient in critical condition but he died on October 24 due to the gunshot wound he got.

Charges Filed Against His Mother

The woman, Vanessa Jenkins, 44 years old, was charged with attempted murder weapon possession and criminal use of a firearm. However, the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office said that cases filed against her are likely to be upgraded.

Furthermore, Jenkins needs to appear before a grand jury so that the charges will be upgraded. Needless to say, it was found that the woman has been arrested five times but all of the cases are sealed. It was also not clear if his son filed a complaint before.
