MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -A local man's mother is dealing with a horrible tragedy after her son allegedly shot and killed her husband in Memphis.

Neighbors identified victim Ronnie Ball of Ecru, through Facebook pictures, as the man who was shot and killed inside a home Friday night.

A police affidavit states that 19-year-old Donovan Kilgore-Russell got into a fight with his mother because he didn't have a job.

Police said Kilgore-Russell was being disrespectful and Ball stepped in, telling him to respect his mother. The two got into an argument and the teen reportedly took out a gun and shot Ball several times.

The suspect will face a judge on Monday.
