BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) - A Maine mother who was shot by her landlord in 2012 following a dispute over snow shoveling says she knew her teenage son and his girlfriend were dead as soon as the gunshots stopped.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1KE0SFa ) 47-year-old Susan Johnson went public with her story last week after 77-year-old James Pak was sentenced to life in prison for the shooting. Pak shot and killed 19-year-old Derrick Thompson and 18-year-old Alivia Welch in a dispute investigators say was over snow shoveling and parking.

Johnson says Pak barged through their apartment’s unlocked door, told them he was going to shoot them all and shot her twice.

She says there’s not a day that goes by that something doesn’t make her cry while thinking about her son.
