LAS VEGAS (AP) - The mother of an 11-year-old boy who was shot in the head in northwest Las Vegas has been arrested.

Las Vegas police say 31-year-old Shavon Aguilar is facing charges of attempted murder and child abuse with a deadly weapon, and two counts of child abuse with mental harm.

She’s being held at the Clark County Detention Center under the name Shavon Carrillo. Bond has been set at $120,000.
