The son of a Brooklyn woman who was shot in the head Wednesday night has been taken into custody.

Ishmel Rogucki, 17, is being charged with criminal possession of a weapon.

Police are still investigating the shooting at the O'Dwyer Gardens Houses.

Family members say it all began when a group of men got into an argument with Victoria Rogucki's two teenage sons over their 16-year-old sister. Shots rang out, but it is not clear if bullets from Rogucki's gun hit his mother.

The 36-year-old was hit twice in the head.

She remains in critical condition.

Police say the teen had a gun on him when they picked him up. But his family is disputing the claim.

"To our knowledge he didn't have a weapon, he didn't have a weapon. Several other witnesses here state that he didn't' have a weapon," said Ishmel Rogucki's cousin, Jose Maldonado.

During the shootout, a 29-year-old man was also grazed in the neck, a 21-year-old man was shot in the arm and a 24-year-old man was shot in the shoulder. They ran from the scene.

Two of them were later found by police after being involved in a car crash near West 16th Street and Surf Avenue. The third man was discovered walking near West 35th Street and Mermaid Avenue.

Ishmel Rogucki was not involved in that accident.

Anyone with information about the case is being asked to contact Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS, by texting TIP577 to CRIMES, or by going to ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
