Poor headline. I thought it was the man's mom who shot him. How can we fix it?

NEW ZEALAND MAN FLIES TO US TO CONFRONT TEEN HE MET ONLINE, HER MOM SHOOTS HIM

or

TEEN GIRL'S MOM SHOOTS KIWI PERV
However you say it, the mom blew-away the perv who flew across the earth to assault a girl he only knew from online gaming.

Right, but it wasn't his mom; it was her mom. The headline starts with "Mom shoots New Zealand man ...", which could be just some woman who happens to be a mom, or it could be New Zealand man's mom. There's nothing to connect the Mom and the teen in that headline.

Uh, if she was his mom, it wouldn't say "man", it would say "son" or "child" . There's nothing to imply that "man" is related to the mom.
