A 66-year-old St. Paul woman was sent to the hospital Wednesday after being shot in her home and police arrested her son, The Pioneer Press reported.
Police came to the 400 block of Robie Street E. shortly before 5 a.m. responding to reports of a woman being shot, The Star Tribune reported.
Ester Richards was sent to Regions Hospital with a gun shot wound, and her condition is unknown at this time, Sgt. Paul Paulos, St. Paul Police spokesman, said as reported by The Star Tribune.
Ryan James Richards, 32, called 911 at 4:53 a.m. to report that his mother had been shot, Paulos said as reported by The Pioneer Press.
Officers arrested Ryan Richards on suspicion of aggravated assault. He was booked into the Ramsey County jail and has not been charged, The Pioneer Press reported.
"We are confident that the person we currently have under arrest is the person that was involved in the shooting, and we hope his mother is doing well," Paulos said as reported by The Pionner Press.
There were no weapons in the house, Paulos said as reported by The Star Tribune.
