A Georgia boy, 13, was taken to a police custody after he allegedly fatally shot his mother, a Navy veteran. After apparently committing the crime, he called 911.

Warner Robins police confirmed the relationship between the boy and the 37-year-old victim.

Cops found Dominique Bowers dead in a Warner Robins house in the afternoon Friday. Police officers were told that a 911 dispatcher was on call "with the possible suspect" in connection with a report about gun shots fired, reported PEOPLE. The suspect was located away from the house where the victim's body was discovered. He was then taken into police custody.

Details on what may have led to the alleged shooting, or whether the son and mother stayed in the house, have not been revealed. The victim, who had studied psychology, was an ex-Builder Petty Officer second Class in the Navy. The woman, who was engaged, had also worked for the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The suspect, whose name hasn't been revealed, faced the Houston County Superior Court on Saturday. The boy, who is charged with murder and aggravated assault, is currently being kept in a youth detention center.

In a similar incident in July, a 14-year-old boy was arrested for allegedly stabbing his mother to death, according to Fox 2 KTVU. Fremont Police Sergeant Ricardo Cortes called it a "big and tragic incident."

When cops reached the scene, they found a man and woman with several stab wounds. Attempts were made to revive the woman, but she couldn't be saved and died at the scene. The man, on the other hand, was conscious.

Cortes said, "They (police officers) were able to get enough information to determine their son was the suspect in this case."

The suspect in the double stabbing had already fled, so police set up a perimeter, getting assistance from Union City and Newark departments. Then about a mile away, at a house, cops got a call about a minor boy being found covered in blood. The teenager, whose identity was not released due to his age, was then arrested.

Police kept mum on motive behind the murder. The suspect's father was hospitalized and was said to be in a stable condition.
