Teen finds mother dead after hearing arguing, gunshots in Detroit home

DETROIT – Family members and friends learned a Detroit mother was killed in a domestic dispute Sunday night.

UPDATE: Person of interest named in fatal shooting of Detroit mother

"I feel so much. I cried like it was my family," neighbor Allen Rochell said.

The 42-year-old woman was killed inside her home near 8 Mile Road and Southfield Freeway. Her 14-year-old won and 4-year-old daughter were in the home.

Detroit police said the teen heard arguing and then gunshots. 

"He was saying, 'Help, my momma has been shot. My momma going to die. I don't know what's going on,'" said Ron Wilson, a neighbor who performed CPR on the woman. 

Neighbors said they rushed inside to try and help the woman, who was shot multiple times. 

"I gave her CPR (and) noticed the bullet wounds," Wilson said. "As I gave her CPR, she took her last two breaths."

The teen told police he saw a man running from the home moments after his mother was killed. He reported seeing a black man leaving the home and driving off in a dark-colored vehicle.

"He might never be right -- always thinking he saw his mother pass," Wilson said.
