LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The mother of a 3-year-old who boy was shot Tuesday night has been arrested. LaQuisha Mosby, 28, was arrested Tuesday night a few hours after the shooting.

Police say Mosby and her boyfriend, Shawn Martin, got into a fight at a home on Manslick Road. During the argument, the child - Camron Mosby - was shot in his right arm and chest. Police say Mosby waited two hours to call for emergency medical help for her son.

"Suspect's intentional delay in calling 911 for victim's life-threatening injuries placed the 3-year- old victim in a situation that caused torture."

Mosby is facing several felony charges, including assault and criminal abuse. Police say they are looking for Shawn Martin.

There is a 2009 court order for Shawn Martin to have no contact with Camron.
