A mother was allegedly shot dead by her son late Monday night in Arlington.
Arlington police said a 911 call was received around 9:15 p.m. on Monday from Melanie Spencer, 38, who told 911 operators she was concerned about her safety and her son had a gun.
Police found the woman shot when they arrived at the home in the 3600 block of Montridge Court.
Spencer was transported to Medical Center of Arlington where she was pronounced dead.
Police said the suspect, Johnathan Peter Lannon, 20, was arrested without incident.
Lannon faces a murder charge for the death of his mother and two counts of aggravated assault for pointing the gun at his grandparents, who were also at the home when the shooting occurred.
