JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Jefferson County deputies have arrested a Quinton woman after she allegedly shot her son's girlfriend in the leg.

Deputies say the shooting happened in the 4100 block of Okahola Road in Quinton around 8:15 p.m. Tuesday night.

The suspect, 43-year-old Jean Lynette Garrett, lives at the home with her son and his 24-year-old girlfriend.

The girlfriend told deputies that the three of them got into an argument about the house not being clean and the air conditioning being left off, Chief Deputy Randy Christian said in an update on Wednesday morning.

"During the argument the mother pointed a handgun at the victim. The victim grabbed the mother's hand and pushed the gun away. The mother stepped back and fired one shot which struck the victim in the leg," Christian stated.

Garrett's son and his girlfriend left the house and called paramedics from a neighbor's home in the 7600 block of Flat Top Road.

The victim was treated for her gunshot wound and has been released from the hospital.

Garrett was charged with first degree assault. She's being held in the Jefferson County Jail on $30,000 bond.
