MADISON, TN (WSMV) -

The mother of one of the suspects accused of fatally shooting 16-year-old Laquan Link on Thursday night is also facing charges. 

The shooting happened on Westchester Drive, which is off Dickerson Pike, just after 9 p.m. Thursday.

Police say 18-year-old Oshae Stewart and 15-year-old Treyvon Palmer shot the teen from inside a car and drove off.

Detectives from the Madison Precinct identified Ykela Williams, mother of Stewart, as an accessory after the fact. 

Officials believe Williams, 42, allegedly helped hide her son's 1996 Infiniti sedan on Nesbitt Lane after the fatal shooting. Both shooting suspects were allegedly in the car when someone opened fire, killing Link outside a residence on Westchester Drive. 

The car was recovered by detectives on Friday evening. 

Williams was arrested Friday night and charged. Her bond is set at $10,000. 

Stewart and Palmer were both charged with criminal homicide. They surrendered separately to detectives on Friday morning. Stewart was jailed in lieu of a $125,000 bond. Palmer is in custody at a juvenile facility. 

All three suspects are reportedly refusing to cooperate with detectives' questioning.
