    Police told News4's Tracee Wilkins that the female victim's 10-year-old son was a witness to the shooting.

    "It's a sad situation all the way around," police spokesperson Jim Collins said.  Authorities said he was shot twice in the head.

    The shooting suspect was found in an SUV parked behind a senior center.  Neighbors said the shooting suspect was the 10-year-old child's son.
