A shooting at a baby shower in Detroit resulted in the death of a 53-year-old woman following an argument with the suspect that centered around the victim’s son, according to authorities.

The uninvited guest and another woman got into an argument during which the victim, identified as Phebe Williams, allegedly hit the suspect. The suspect allegedly pulled out a gun and shot Williams, WXYZ-TV reported.

Williams’ niece spoke with WXYZ-TV and said the suspect is a “friend of the family” and Williams and the suspect had been close friends since childhood.

The argument reportedly stemmed from the suspect claiming Williams’ son was involved in a crime, which she reported to the Detroit Police on Oct. 13.

After the shooting occurred, the suspect called the Detroit Police, admitted what she had done and drove to a nearby precinct, WXYZ-TV reported.

Both the suspect and Williams’ son were taken into custody, officials said.

Relatives of the suspect believe the fatal shooting is a case of self-defense, according to WXYZ-TV.

Meanwhile, Williams’ niece told WXYZ-TV, "Y’all could have just fought. You didn’t have to pull a gun. There’s kids in the house. It’s a lot of people in the house, so why would you pull out a gun?"
