HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- A woman is dead after an argument with her son early Saturday morning in southeast Harris County, according to deputies.

It happened around 12:20 a.m. at a home in the 10100 block of Sagedale Drive.

A 37-year-old woman was reportedly shot several times by her 20-year-old son, identified as Jacob McMurrough, according to Harris County deputies.

The mother and son lived with the mother's parents, who are in their 90s and were home at the time.

McMurrough was booked into the Harris County Jail Saturday morning on a murder charge.
