A woman was shot and killed when she fired a warning shot to break up a fight among juveniles

Beaumont, TX – A 41-year-old woman was shot to death by a juvenile after the woman fired a shot from her own gun into the air to break up a fight.

Police received a call of a shooting at apartment complex at 4:26 a.m. last Sunday, according to KFDM.

Monica Landrio saw a group of 30 teens in an altercation and Landrio fired her gun in the air to stop them.

When police arrived, they found Landrio with multiple gunshot wounds, according to KFDM.

A 15-year-old male suspect fled the scene. He was later apprehended by police.

The 15-year-old was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. At the time he was charged, Landrio was in critical condition in the hospital.

She has since succumbed to her wounds.

Justice of the Peace Ben Collins Sr. said at that time it was possible the charge could be upgraded to murder, according to KFDM.

You shoot to stop a threat....not as a warning shot. Idiot

You don't fire the weapon unless you're under fire. You became a threat, now you're dead. Dumb.

This is a very troubling case. The fact that the late Ms Landrio (rest in peace) fired her weapon first could be used against her. The youth that was arrested could make the case that he fired at her in self defense since she fired her weapon first. I'll have to wait and see how this plays out. It's a horrible situation and I hope this case is thoroughly investigated.

Also, when a bullet goes up it must come down. Glad it didn’t hit anybody.

Why does a 15yo have a gun and why he is out fighting at 4 o'clock in the damn morning??? That's a catastrophic parental failure right there!!

If their were that many kids out there at that time of morning call the cops and let them handle the problem, one against 30 is usually not to good of odds.

And what was one of the first rules of conduct we learned in academy? Never fire a warning shot. She was completely out of her Lane.
