Police: Mother shoots her 11-year-old son, then herself

Posted: Updated:

NEW FREEDOM, Pa. (AP) - Police say a mother and her son are in critical condition after she apparently shot him and then herself.

Police tell The York Dispatch 36-year-old Jennifer Liszewski was taken to York Hospital and her 11-year-old son was airlifted to Hershey Medical Center.

Southern Regional Police say both are on life support and they don't know whether either will survive.

Liszewski's 14-year-old son was also in their New Freedom home but wasn't hurt. Police say he called emergency responders early Wednesday morning.

Officers found the wounded boy unresponsive on a first-floor couch. Liszewski was next to him on the couch and also wasn't responsive.

Police say Liszewski's mother also lives there but she wasn't in the home during the shooting.
