The incident is believed to be an accident by some. She was “unloading a shotgun in the family home,” in Massachusetts, and a shot killed Seth M. Bishop, 18.

From the Boston Globe:

The Boston Globe reported at the time that Amy Bishop had
accidentally shot her 18-year-old brother, Seth M. Bishop, an
accomplished violinist who had won a number of science awards, in
Braintree.

Braintree Police Chief Paul Frazier confirmed today at a news
conference that Amy Bishop had fatally shot her brother. But Frazier
offered a different account of the shooting, saying Bishop had shot her
brother during an argument and was being booked by police
when the
police chief at the time ordered the booking process stopped and Bishop
released to her mother.

Frazier said he was basing his statements on the memories of one of his
officers who was on the department at the time and had arrested Bishop.
He said the records from the case have been missing since at least 1987.

Amy Bishop is the mother of four.
