$1M Bond for Mom Charged With Shooting Son During Family Party in Lawndale

Bond was set at $1 million on Sunday for a mother charged with shooting her son during a family gathering in the Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side, according to court records.

Angeline Minniefield, 43, faces one felony count each of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery with the discharge of a firearm, according to Chicago Police.

Minniefield was at a family party about 12:45 a.m. Saturday in an apartment in the 1400 block of South Avers when she got into an argument with a 21-year-old man, police said. She pulled out a gun and shot the man in the neck. Sources confirmed he is Minniefield’s son.

The man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was listed in good condition, police said.

Minniefield, who lives on the same block as the shooting, was arrested at the scene and subsequently charged. She was next scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 3.
