Lee County - A 16-year-old Deerfield-Windsor student killed himself with a .22 caliber pistol Monday morning, after an argument with his mother.
Joey Randle, a 10th grader at Deerfield-Windsor School apparently shot his mother in the arm and the face as the two argued in their Somerset Drive home about 7:15 this morning.
Police say that Ms. Randle barricaded herself in the bathroom, and called 911 to report that her son had a gun. Forty-eight-year-old Judy Randle was shot twice, and said she heard a gunshot outside the bathroom. Officers came in to find her son dead with a gunshot wound.
Deerfield-Windsor headmaster W. T. Henry was called to the scene, and has informed the student body at the school, where couselors will assist students who may need counseling after the tragedy.
Judy Randle underwent surgery this morning at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is handling the investigation.
