Shot His Mother.

PITTSBURG, Sept. 9—A peculiarly distressing accident occurred about 7 o'clock this morning at the suburban residence of James T. McIntosh, a well known merchant, located about five miles from the city. A son of Mr. McIntosh, aged about twenty-three years, was in the act of shooting a cat, when his mother stepped in front of the animal. The bullet struck her on the back of the head, and she fell to the ground unconscious. The wound is considered fatal, although she was still living at noon. The young man was crazed with grief, and attempted to commit suicide.
