A Chicago mother fatally shot her 12-year-old son in the head in a rage over a missing memory card, prosecutors allege.
Fallon Harris, 37, was charged with first-degree murder after the death of her son, Kaden Ingram, at their South Chicago home.
Kaden was found unresponsive on the kitchen floor with multiple bullet wounds to his head on Saturday morning, September 11.
Prosecutors alleged in court Sunday, September 12, that Harris was caught on a home security system firing the second and fatal shot.
In a Sunday court hearing, Cook County State’s Attorney Eugene Wood alleged the incident began mid-morning Saturday when Harris confronted her son over the whereabouts of a digital memory card she had taken out of her car Friday night, September 10. Wood didn’t say what was on the memory card.
According to prosecutors, the situation escalated when Kaden told his mom he didn’t know where the memory card was.
Harris allegedly pointed a silver revolver at the boy and fired a non-fatal shot to his head.
