Victoria Ramirez, 43, of Springville, was shot by her son Mike Lopez, 23, during dinner at their home at 944 S. 1000 East, police said. When Lopez pointed a shotgun at his mother over their kitchen table, she responded, “I know you’re going to kill me,” according to a police affidavit. Lopez shot his mother once in the neck after exchanging nods with his 14-year-old sister, who police said he then danced with. A 17-year-old sister who witnessed the shooting locked herself in a bathroom and climbed out the window, then ran from the home and called her adult sister, who called police.
