An 83-year-old grandmother was shot – on National Grandparents Day – as two brothers fought over a cell phone Sunday in a Southwest Miami-Dade neighborhood, police said.

The grandmother, Marian Hall, was trying to break up the fight between her two adult grandchildren outside a Goulds home at 223rd Street and 117th Place, according to Miami-Dade Police.

At one point, one of the brothers, identified as 23-year-old Kenneth Smith, went inside and picked up a gun, officials said.

"Once inside the home, one of the brothers armed himself with a firearm where he intended to shoot at the brother and struck the grandmother in the leg," said Miami-Dade Police spokeswoman Robin Pinkard.

Hall was airlifted to Kendall Regional Trauma Center, but close friends said she is in stable condition.

Smith, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a person 65 or older and battery.

He was being held on $19,000 bond Monday and it was unknown whether he has an attorney.

The other grandson, 28-year-old Robert Hill, wasn't charged.
