GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) - Police arrested a suburban Portland woman accused of fatally shooting her teenage son.

Records show Dianne Davidoff of Gresham was booked into jail Friday on accusations of murder and unlawful use of a weapon. Her first court appearance was scheduled for Monday and she is being held without bail.

Gresham police said the 17-year-old boy was shot in the back Thursday night at a home from which the family appeared to moving. Court records show the house had gone into foreclosure.

Police have yet to release any information about what led to the shooting.

Next-door neighbor Bruce Maiden told KOIN-TV that Davidoff had thoughts that people were chasing her, and she showed him a gun about a month ago.

Maiden says the woman had been unemployed for several months.
