Police: Son kills mother, himself at assisted living center

VOORHEES, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a man shot and killed his elderly mother before turning the gun on himself at an assisted living facility in southern New Jersey.

Police were called to Genesis HealthCare Voorhees Center in Voorhees at 5:44 p.m. Sunday.

The Camden County Prosecutor's Office said 62-year-old George Bullet III was visiting his 85-year-old mother, Andree Bullet. Authorities said the mother and son had eaten dinner together, and afterward, George Bullet III, of Lumberton, went to his car. He returned and shot his mother. Authorities said a nurse walked in as he shot and killed himself.

Nobody else was hurt in the shooting.

Police are continuing to investigate.

The facility is home to patients receiving short- and long-term care and those receiving cardiac management and dementia and Alzheimer's care.
