Cleveland police are investigating the fatal shooting of a 57-year-old woman.

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.

Cleveland EMS and firefighters gave emergency aid to Foster when police arrived at the scene. EMS transported to Foster to MetroHealth, where she later died, police said.
