A 9-year-old boy is alleged to have fatally shot his adoptive mother dead at their MI home on Monday.

MI mum Pauline Randol, 51, was allegedly gunned down at her home in Fawn River Township on Monday.

"He shot at my grandkids with the BB guns a few times", he said, acknowledging that he had witnessed the boy's violent behavior. "My want was to remove him from the school and protect the children".

"I am unable to comment on the facts or status of the case", said T. J. Reed, an attorney for the boy.
