A 22-year-old suburban Detroit man has been charged with open murder in the fatal shooting of his 52-year-old mother as she drove him home from a family dinner on Thanksgiving eve.

The Oakland County sheriff's office says Monday that George Harry II also is charged with five counts of attempted murder and using a firearm during a felony after shots later were fired at passing vehicles. Harry of Troy faces arraignment Tuesday. Sonya Harry of Southfield was shot once in the head Wednesday along the city limits of Royal Oak and Pleasant Ridge. George Harry II also is accused of firing shots at three passing vehicles. A woman driving one of those vehicles was struck in the leg.
