A 31-year-old is accused of fatally shooting his 64-year-old mother on Monday in North Las Vegas, police said.

Officers received a report of a shooting at 11:15 a.m. on the 6600 block of Giant Oak Street, a residential area near Clayton Street and Deer Springs Way, according to a statement from the North Las Vegas Police Department.

When police arrived, they found the woman suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. She was taken to a local hospital, where she died, police said.

Officers arrested a 31-year-old man after he “was pointed out on scene by a witness,” the statement said. The man was the woman’s son, police said.

The department identified the man as Andre Robinson. He did not have a case in online court records as of Tuesday morning.

Robinson was booked into the North Las Vegas Detention Center on Tuesday morning on a murder with a deadly weapon charge, jail records show.
