The chaos inside an Arlington apartment would leave one person dead and three injured, but a neighbor said it began with an elderly woman arguing with her adult son: “I’m working all my life,” she yelled. “Why aren’t you looking for a job?” The disturbance led Arlington officers to the Gates of Ballston complex, where around 11 a.m. they encountered the son in his residence, police said. One officer received a serious gash across his face, a second was Tasered, the mother suffered minor injuries, and Alfredo Rials-Torres, 54, was shot in the chest by police.
