A San Luis Obispo man allegedly shot and killed his mother on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at his apartment on the corner of Beach and Buchon streets.
Arroyo Grande resident Karen Shumey, 65, and her son Christopher Shumey, 34, were in a heated argument when Karen Shumey left her son’s residence.

Police arrived and Christopher Shumey started shooting at officers with a shotgun from his upstairs apartment. After a short altercation, he surrendered to officers.
