A Texas resident was arrested after she allegedly told police that she shot and killed her elderly grandmother.

Kelsie Miles, 30, was charged with one count of murder on Sunday, according to the Dallas Police Department. She is accused of killing her 80 year-old grandmother, Betty Lou Hearn, at their East Oak Cliff home.

The Grand Prarie Police Department told Fox News Digital that Miles contacted them about the shooting at around 5:10 a.m. on Sunday morning.

“Miles did drive to the Grand Prairie Police Department where she met officers outside in the parking lot and told them about the shooting in Dallas,” a department spokesperson explained.

“Officers responded to the address, and after receiving no response from anyone inside and having reason to believe someone may need immediate medical help, the officers forced entry into the home,” the statement read.
