According to authorities, an 18-year-old gunned down his mother during an argument with his mom and dad at their Staten Island home Saturday evening.
Minire Pelinkovic, 51, was found with a gunshot wound to the chest when officers arrived to the home on Burbank Avenue, according to authorities. She was rushed to the hospital and declared dead.
According to police, the suspect’s dad, who was also present at the time, was cut on the chest. According to police, he refused treatment at the scene perhaps because of the fact that his injury was not life threatening.
According to police, their son, Adnan Pelinkovic, was apprehended at the scene. Authorities charged him with murder, attempted murder, assault, criminal possession of a loaded firearm, reckless endangerment, and menacing on two counts each.
