Police are treating the death of Marie Smothers as homicide after an eight-year old boy shot the 87-year-old with her own gun in a mobile home park near Slaughter, Los Angeles.
She was shot from behind while watching television last Thursday and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities identified the woman as the boy's "caregiver," without stating whether she is a relative. But CNN affiliate WBRZreported that the woman was the boy's grandmother.
