Mom Shot Dead On Mother's Day In Front Of 8-Year-Old Son

( 4UMF NEWS ) Mom Shot Dead On Mother's Day In Front Of 8-Year-Old Son:

A Kentucky mother was shot and killed outside her apartment complex on the morning of Mother’s Day — right in front of her 8-year-old son, who had a gift ready for her.

Angelina Pressley, 27, died around 3 a.m. after the shooting in front of her home in Louisville, police said.

Police and family members said she was on her way home from a Derby party when a man walked across a parking lot, approached her and fired several shots before running away.

After the gunfire, a neighbor ran down and comforted Pressley’s son — who witnessed the entire deadly encounter.

“I was like, ‘You just got to breathe,’” neighbor Brandy Gregory told WLKY. “There's a good chance Jesus is not ready for Mommy. Mommy will be back.”

Worse yet, police revealed the boy was ready to celebrate Mother’s Day — with a gift awaiting his mother.

“He made the comment that his favorite thing in the world to do was to spend time with his mother, and he was exceptionally excited that night because he had bought her a necklace that he planned to give her on Mother’s Day,” Louisville Metro Police Detective Todd Kessinger told reporters.

“Unfortunately, somebody came and shot her right in front of him and he never had the opportunity to give her that necklace.”

The boy is now in the care of other family members, Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell told the Daily News.

Police have made no arrests and named no suspects, and the motive for the Mother’s Day murder is unknown. Mitchell said police have not determined if Pressley was targeted.
