SILVER SPRINGS, Nev. (AP) -- Lyon County sheriff's deputies say a woman has apparently shot and killed her adult son in self-defense in Silver Springs.

Deputies arrived to find the man dead from a single gunshot wound. The woman was taken to the hospital for injuries sustained during the incident.

Deputies say while initial indications are that the shooting was in self-defense, the death is under investigation.

Their names were not immediately released.
