A 14-year-old boy taken into custody Thursday is accused of shooting his mother and her boyfriend in Texarkana over the weekend, injuring them both, police said.

The shooting happened Saturday at 2408 Laurel St. at about 7 p.m., according to a news release by Texarkana police.

The mother received minor injuries while the boyfriend was transported to a local hospital where he received emergency surgery, Corporal Kelly Pilgreen said Friday. According to Pilgreen, the man is expected to make a full recovery.
