WASHINGTON — A 17-year-old Clinton, Maryland, boy is dead, and his mother is facing charges in his homicide.
Angelique Chase, 48, is charged with second-degree murder and assault.
The Prince George’s County police said in a statement that officers responded Chase’s home, on Buckler Road, at around 9 p.m. Thursday to find Chase’s son, Christopher Perry, suffering from gunshot wounds.
Perry was taken to a hospital, and later died.
Chase was in an argument with her son and later admitted to playing role in his death, the police said.
Chase is in custody awaiting a commissioner to set bond, said John Erzen, with the county district attorney’s office.
Chase has no prior convictions for violent crime in Maryland.
Perry was not a student at Prince George’s County schools.
