    I shot tonight near my home, about 50 miles from the site of the shooting. One of the other guys at the range says there is a video already out, but edited. It shows the mom walking up to the son and shooting him behind the ear.

    I haven't seen it, so just scuttlebut...

    It looks like all the signs were there. With her past problems why did her son ever take her to the range or let her handle a gun. I cannot believe the son took her there especially with her having a previous history of suicide at this range. I shop there but do not use the range

    I think it is a bit of a stretch to ask a 20 year old who has grown up with strange behavior from a mother with a mental illness to recognize the signs of her impending behavior. SOME 20 year olds are mature and aware enough to see and understand what is going on here. Some I wouldn't trust to put air in the tires of my car.

    Sometimes you want the best for your loved one so badly that you cannot see the signs. Truly sad all the way around.

    Florida Woman Kills Son, Self at Gun Range

    FOXNews.com - Florida Woman Kills Son, Self at Gun Range - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News

    CASSELBERRY, Fla. A Florida woman fatally shot her son and then turned the gun on herself at a central Florida gun range, authorities said.

    Marie Moore, 44, of Altamonte Springs and her 20-year-old son, Mitchell, were sharing a firing lane at the Shoot Straight range Sunday, Casselberry police said. Shooters in an adjacent lane said the mother and son seemed to be getting along fine. A security video shows Moore walk up behind her son, point a revolver at the back of his head and fire a single shot, police said. She then put the gun in her mouth and pulled the trigger.

    The son died at the scene, and the mother died later at the hospital. Family members told police that Moore had a history of mental illness.

    The gun was rented from the shooting range.

    Apparently Shoot Straight had banned her before for an attempted suicide. Can anyone verify this?

    Anyway, my guess is that she had her son rent the guns and buy the range time, so that they wouldn't check her ID. Unless they check ID anyway? I have never been to that SS.

    I don't think so. I saw a report once where the guy committed suicide and had three gunshot wounds to the back of the head. Anything can happen.

    Yep, I posted the full video earlier today and it got yanked. Suffice it to say, nothing is left to the imagination, and it was no accident.

    dad mentioned this being on the news and then i caught part of it on the news before i changed channel.....depressing crap is happening. not the 1st one in recent years either we had one in orlando about a year maybe 2 years ago @ east orange as well except that person only shot themselves. yet another reason why i like my out door range no partitions and i can keep an eye on everyone around me @ all times and carrying concealed is allowed as long as you have a permit unlike most gun shops in florida
