      Mother shoots son before fatally shooting herself

      A Wentzville woman shoots her son, then shoots herself.

      An eastern Missouri woman is dead and her son is hospitalized after she apparently shot him before turning the gun on herself.

      The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/10AkID5) reports the shooting in Wentzville was reported around 3:30 p.m. Saturday by the woman's son, who told police his mother had shot him and then shot herself.

      Wentzville police officers found the son lying on a driveway. One officer picked him up and carried him to an ambulance about a block away.

      His mother was found inside the home, dead from a gunshot wound.

      The boy was listed in stable condition in a St. Louis hospital. Police declined to release his name because he is a juvenile.
