The woman of Florida, was arrested after she admitted to taking her son to an apartment so he could kill someone.

Sondra Conegia, 54, allegedly told police that she drove her son around for a few hours, until they spotted the wanted man at his home.

Police said that 32-year-old Lewis Hawkins, was looking for the man with whom she had a fight at a bar a week ago.

Around 1:00 a.m., Hawkins spotted the man, who was identified as 34-year-old Dion Skeeter, at the Holly Hill apartment complex.

Hawkins opened the window of his mother’s car, pointed a gun at the victim and fired nine shots. Luckily, the bullets missed the target and no one was injured.

Police found bullet holes inside the apartment where Skeeter’s pregnant girlfriend and her two children were sleeping at the time.

Police believe Hawkins is a member of the Latin Kings gang.

Conegia was charged with being principal to attempted first-degree murder, and was ordered to be held without bail.

Her son, who is still on the run, is wanted on charges of attempted first-degree murder.
