CLEVELAND, Ohio – A man has been arrested after he said he accidentally shot his mother while playing with a shotgun at their home on Wednesday, police said.
Sharon Foster, 57, of Cleveland was shot in the chest about 4:50 p.m. by her son 36-year-old at their home on West 46th Street near Train Avenue, according to police and the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office.
