    Mom shoots son

    The 13-year-old was home alone when he saw his mother outside and would not let her in. He then told police that he looked out the window and saw his mother with a gun. She pointed the gun at the window and fired.

    The son then ran out the front door and flagged down a passing motorist who allowed him to get inside. The motorist then drove the victim to a safe distance away from the home and called 911.

    Negotiators spoke via cell phone with Hogan throughout an hour. She repeatedly threatened suicide. Ultimately, the phone calls led the officers to an address in the unit block of 4th Avenue in the community of Midvale.

    At 8:36 p.m., officers located Hogan sitting outside of the home armed with a handgun. During the negotiations, she placed the gun inside her mouth and against her head and pled for the officers to shoot her.

    While negotiating, a family member exited the home and grabbed Hogan as the weapon discharged. Police moved in and arrested Hogan without further incident. The weapon discharged into the home but did not strike any of the occupants.

    the mother did not live at the home and was not allowed to be there. freakin wonder why... the child must have locked her out because he feared his mother and with good reason it seems.

    They're flashing this woman's face all over our local news. Hate to judge by a photograph, but one look tells me there's seriously a problem with the lady.

    It's a great big house too. It looks very nice. My thought was she was trying to get in for money or something. Then she shoots her own kid. People are losing it.
