A Delaware woman is recovering after police say her son dove in front of her when her neighbor broke into her apartment and opened fire, according to NBC News.

Patricia Buckworth, 40, was with her 19-year-old son Roderick on Tuesday shortly before 6 p.m. inside her unit at the Foxwood Apartment Complex in Pine Creek, Delaware. Buckworth told NBC10 her son had just returned from Wesley College in Dover, where he is studying criminal justice.

As they were spending time together, police say their neighbor, 41-year-old Jason Brunson, broke into their apartment armed with a gun and immediately started shooting, NBC News reports.
