Phyllis McDole, the mother of a Delaware man in a wheelchair whose fatal shooting by police was captured on video, was arrested for allegedly beating a woman she believed called the police on her son, but according to police, the victim was not the 911 caller.

Wilmington police fatally shot Jeremy McDole, 28, Sept. 23 after receiving a call from a woman claiming that a man had shot himself and was still armed, the Associated Press reports. The call was released to the public Friday. According to court records viewed by AP, after hearing the recording, Phyllis McDole, 48, and five other people reportedly went to the house of a woman they believed made the call and beat her. The victim suffered two black eyes, a cut lip and scratches, according to court records.


"You got my son shot and you gonna die like my son did," Phyllis McDole reportedly told the victim, according to court records.

Phyllis McDole turned herself in to police on Monday and was released on $10,000 bond. She has been charged with assault and terroristic threatening, burglary and conspiracy.
