MOORESVILLE, NC — We know the name of a Mooresville mother police say was shot by her son’s father. 32-year-old Lashondra Page was in critical condition Monday night.
35-year-old William Washington is locked up, charged with attempted first-degree murder. Police say he shot Page at a home on Sharpe Street in Mooresville Monday morning, then took off with their 3-year-old child. Police caught up with Washington and his son at a gas station on Graham Street in Charlotte. The boy is okay.
“It’s just very heartbreaking,” said Troutman resident Latoya Torrence, “because I’ve been through that myself before, and it’s nothing fun. And I just feel sorry for the kids, and I hope the mom makes it through and pulls through.”
Mooresville Police tell WCCB Charlotte they have responded to domestic violence calls at that home before.
