Willie Goolsby is still processing the news that his friend is dead.
"I don't see why this would happen. I just don't see why she would turn on her mother like that, especially with a gun," said Goolsby.
Family members told FOX13 they don't understand why the shooting happened, but that there was arguing before the shooting started.
Relatives who didn't want to go on camera said the shooting has left Pearlie's husband in disbelief.
"Sad situation especially for him because he is a good guy. I hate that it happened to him," said Goolsby.
Investigators charged Labraysha Hamilton with murder Monday afternoon.
