Kevin Ford, 40, Bayou Body Count No. 33

Last week, we told you about a man suspected of killing his daughter. The tragic trend continued, as a mother is now suspected of slaying her son.

Police say that the mother of 40-year-old Kevin Ford shot her son Friday during a struggle over a pistol. The woman had grabbed the weapon to protect herself after hearing strange noises late at night in their home at 5300 Coke, northeast of Downtown.

At some point, police say, the two began battling over the gun, when it fired. The bullet whizzed right through Ford's abdomen and then hit his mother in the hip. Police say she will most likely recover from her injuries.

No one was immediately charged with a crime, but the Harris County District Attorney's Office will review the case.
