ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Police are investigating a homicide after a woman was found killed after being shot multiple times in north St. Louis.

The shooting happened in the 5000 block of Alcott around 6:45 p.m.

Investigators say the victim, identified as Tracey Fields, was involved in a domestic dispute with her son, 21-year-old Travon Tyrel Fields, before he allegedly shot her inside their car. Fields and his mother began arguing inside the vehicle when he allegedly shot her multiple times in the head with a .380 hi-point pistol. 

The suspect fled on foot to a gas station near Interstate 70 and Union, but was detained by bystanders until police arrived. Immediately after the shooting, he made multiple statements saying he had just shot his mother. 

Fields was charged with murder in the first degree and armed criminal action.
