An 18-year-old is facing charges for allegedly shooting and killing his mother after a fight during dinner at the family’s Staten Island home.
Police say Minire Pelinkovic, 51, was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital with a gunshot wound in her lower back, according to the NYPD.
Officers picked up and arrested her son, Adnan Pelinkovic, for allegedly firing the shot that killed her. He’s been hit with more than half a dozen charges, including murder, attempted murder and assault.
A 54-year-old man, Adnan’s father, also suffered injuries in the domestic dispute. Police say he sustained a laceration on his chest but refused medical treatment at the home.
The police said the shooting followed after an argument at the dinner table that quickly escalated around 6:15pm on Saturday. That’s when the 18-year-old son grabbed his father’s gun and shot his mother.
