AUSTIN (KYTX) -- A bizarre murder in south Austin Thursday has a lot of folks talking tonight. Police say a 68 year-old-woman was involved in an argument and suffered some injuries.

As officers were helping her onto a gurney, they said the woman's son drove up in his car. They said he stepped on the gas and slammed into her as she was being loaded into an ambulance.  

"[They] looked up, saw a vehicle coming towards them," Cpl. Wuthipong Tantaksinanukij said. "They tried to get the victim out of the way but they could not. The suspect struck the victim while she was on the stretcher. Killing her."

The police officers were able to get out of the way and were not hurt. The suspect is now in custody.
