TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A 49-year-old man is accused of shooting his mother in the chest and turning the gun on his girlfriend inside a New Jersey house.

NJ.com reports (http://bit.ly/1QT2ib0 ) Keith Jones was arrested Wednesday afternoon, minutes after the gunfire broke out in Trenton. He faces attempted murder and weapons charges.

Lt. Stephen Varn says Jones’ 67-year-old mother was taken a hospital, where she received emergency surgery and remains in critical condition. His 33-year-old girlfriend was shot in the face, arm, torso and leg. Her condition wasn’t immediately known.

Jones’ bail has been set at $2 million. It wasn’t immediately known if he had an attorney to comment on the charges.

Jones was charged last year with holding a gun to the head of an infant and beating and threatening to kill the child’s mother.
