MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – Police say they are unable to explain why a mother shot and killed her teenage son in the back on Monday night.

The shooting happened just before 11 p.m. in the 2000 block of Jones Lane in the Plateau community of Mobile. An ambulance transported the 13-year-old boy to University of South Alabama Teaching Hospital, but he did not survive.

Police charged the mother, Glenda Marie Agee, with murder. She is being held at the Metropolitan Mobile County Jail.

Mobile has seen its share of teenage shootings over the past two years. But Corporal. Ryan Blakely said it’s not every day that a child dies at the hands of a parent.

“It’s unusual. … It’s a first for me right now,” he said.

Agee appeared distraught on Tuesday afternoon when police pushed her wheelchair into a patrol vehicle to take her to jail. “God, no,” she said.

Okay, 53, crushed reporters trying to talk to him.

“I love my baby,” she said, holding back tears. “Get away from me. Get away from me.

Police say Agee was not using a wheelchair during the shooting and was not injured in the incident or during her arrest. But they said they allowed her to use a wheelchair on Tuesday because she is frail.

Neighbors described the victim as a good child, living in a house frequently visited by police. A woman saw the aftermath of the shooting.

“When I got home I just saw her, and when I passed by I just saw the door wide open,” she said. “I hate what happened to the little boy. He was a nice little boy. He was just bullied all the time and he had a troubled family. He just had a troubled life the whole time.

Agee has been arrested dozens of times since the early 1990s, charged with offenses ranging from reckless endangerment and public intoxication to domestic violence and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Police Mobile said that in the past two years alone, officers have been called to Agee’s address 34 times for reasons as varied as 911 hang-ups, assault complaints and medical emergencies. .

Another neighbor said the victim sometimes played with his children.

“I wish he was in a better situation,” she said. “The situation he was in, for a child, it was the wrong situation. Because he couldn’t have grown up like the child should have.

A local man said he had seen the police several times at Agee’s house, but never doubted that she loved his son.

“She loved him and he loved her,” he said. “For her to kill him, she shouldn’t have been in her right mind.”

Agee was on bail at the time of the shooting, charged with reckless endangerment and second-degree assault of a Prichard police officer in January. The Mobile County District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday asked a judge to revoke that bond because of the murder arrest.

Just before the police chased her, FOX10 New asked Agee if it was self-defense.

“No,” she said, as the officers put her in the back seat. “I love my child.”
