80 year old Mom Shoots at Police in Tennessee

An elderly woman fired several shots at officers Friday night in a standoff that began when deputies tried to capture her 60 year old son in Jackson Tennessee.

The local paper, The Jackson Sun, reported that an 80 year old West Tennessee woman and her son are being held in jail. 

Four deputies went to the woman’s mobile home on a tip that her son was there.  The officers heard the man talking inside and when they knocked on the door, the woman opened it, then slammed it shut and fired a shot through it!

The deputies took cover and during the hour long standoff, two more shots were fired through the door.

There were no injuries.  The deputies found the man hiding in a closet.
