Chicago Mom Fatally Shoots Her Own Son Over a Misplaced Memory Card!
A Chicago, Illinois mother is behind bars today after committing an unthinkable act on 9/11. Just yesterday, the day that the country sets aside to remember those who were lost in the Twin Towers attack, 37-year-old Fallon C. Harris got into an argument with her young son over a missing memory card.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Harris confronted her son, 12-year-old Kaden Ingram, over a missing memory card. When the boy didn’t produce the item, Fallon shot him, leaving him conscious, but crying, according to Assistant State’s Attorney Eugene Wood. When Harris again demanded the storage card, she shot him a second time. The boy collapsed on the kitchen floor.
Harris then told two relatives by phone that she had shot her son because he wouldn’t return her card, prompting them to contact police and the boy’s father, authorities said.
Arriving officers said Harris answered the front door and said she shot her son before leading them to the silver revolver she’d used, Wood said.
Kaden’s father, who met police at the home, found him unresponsive in the kitchen. He was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 10:51 a.m.
Relatives told authorities that Harris, who lacked a criminal background and has a concealed carry license, had been experiencing paranoid behavior, and had been complaining that people were out to get her, Wood told the court.
Prosecutors also noted that the confrontation and shooting were captured on a surveillance system inside the home.
In a hearing earlier today, via video, Harris was disruptive in court shouting that she hadn't been able to consult with her court-appointed attorney and then began calling for her mother.
Harris is being charged with first-degree murder and is due back in court tomorrow morning. Records show that she is employed by the city's Department of Transportation.
This case is completely deplorable and we don't even know what to say. This child did not have to die for something this trivial!
