An argument on Sunday left a Mississippi mom fatally shot and her daughter behind bars, according to multiple reports.

At around 11 p.m., Panola County investigators responded to a shooting, according to the website Localmemphis.com, an ABC affiliate.

After an investigation, 23-year-old Labraysha Hamilton was arrested and charged with murder, PEOPLE confirms.

The woman’s mother, “Pearly” Hamilton, 46, was shot to death, according to the Panel County medical examiner.

“I don’t see why this would happen,” neighbor Willie Goolsby told Fox13. “I just don’t see why she would turn on her mother like that, especially with a gun.”
