CROTONA, the Bronx (WABC) -- Authorities have made an arrest in the deadly shooting of a 24-year-old mother in the Bronx.

Lashawn Andrews, 24, was shot in the face by a woman who was part of a group that was fighting outside her house on 422 East 178 Street in Crotona, the Bronx.

Police arrested and charged Latrisha Lowman, 41, with the murder of Andrews.

Police say Lowman shot Andrews in the face during that dispute on Sunday.

Andrews was taken to Saint Barnabas Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Keisha Andrews, the victim's mother, described Lashawn as a free-spirited, loving woman.

"She was beautiful, talented, humble. My baby is gone," Keisha Andrews told Eyewitness News.

Andrews leaves behind two children, ages 3 and 4.

It's unclear what the dispute was about.
