79-Year-Old Woman Shoots Grand Nephew In The Foot Over $20

A 79-year-old Alabama woman was arrested on Feb. 22 after she allegedly shot her grand nephew in the foot for stealing $20, reports.

Mobile police received a phone call at about 9:30 a.m. reporting that a person had been shot. The victim said his great aunt, Ira Belle Peterson, shot him once in the foot during an argument about money, according to Mobile Police Department spokesman Terence Perkins.

Perkins said the woman and her grand nephew lived together. Peterson had accused the boy of stealing $20 from her and that’s when she decided to shoot him in the foot.

Peterson has been charged with second-degree domestic violence. She appeared unremorseful in her mugshot, wearing a house dress and smug smile. She was released on bail.
