Shot him twice. Not once. But twice. And she was looking for some memory card that SHE removed from the vehicle. Not even the kid. So she’s asking the location of something she removed. That kid probably had no idea what she was even talking about. Horrible.

This may be the worst thing I’ve read in awhile.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 60%. (I'm a bot)


Harris confronted the boy about 10:15 Saturday morning about the whereabouts of a digital memory card she had removed from her vehicle the previous night, according to Cook County State's Attorney Eugene Wood.

After he was unable to produce the memory card when his mother demanded it at gunpoint, she shot him, Wood said Sunday during Harris' initial court appearance.

Harris was taken into custody shortly after the shooting, which appeared to be a case of domestic violence, according to police.
