A 19-year-old Palm Springs youth is in custody, charged with killing his mother.
Police say they received a 9-1-1 call about 4:25 a.m. today from a person inside a home in the 4100 block of Calle San Antonio, reporting that a female had been shot. Officers arrived and discovered a wounded woman, who was transported to a local area hospital in critical condition.
Officers on scene detained three adult males who were inside the home at the time of the shooting and the PSPD Crimes Against Persons Investigation Unit responded to the scene.
During this investigation, PSPD Detectives determined that the victim’s biological adult son, Brian Conroy, 19, intentionally shot the victim, identified as Amber Lane, 36, who has since died from her injuries.
PSPD Detectives are continuing their investigation together at this time. Conroy has been arrested and booked into the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning, for a violation of 187 (a) P.C. – Murder.
