Other questions about "Shouting"

Q: is it correct to say, "I'm fed up with my mum shouting at me all the time without having any justifiable reason.

I'm really looking forward to him going to my birthday party. It will definitely be the best birthday ever.

Many suicides occur by people cutting themselves off from everybody else."?
A: Good job!

Sentence 1:
- In AmE we say "mom", not "mum". This is a small point.
- To sound more natural, you can switch "without having any justifiable reason" to "for no good reason". Your way is grammatically correct, but this variant is more common and natural in speech (and it's shorter).

Sentence 3:
- After "many suicides occur by", I'm expecting to hear the way the suicide is performed (by hanging, stabbing, etc.). I think the meaning of your sentence would be better captured by "Many suicides are preceded by" or "Many suicides are a result of".

Q: What does this 'deny shouting' mean?
Because I thought 'deny 〜ing' means that somebody doesn't admit of doing something, 'deny shouting' could mean the customer didn't admit of his/her shouting,
but in the context in the picture below, it sounds like the customer denied what the staff said, that was shoplifting, in a loud voice, that was shouting.

So is 'deny shouting' structually ambiguous?
Or is this sentence not good sentence to mean 'deny something in a loud voice'?
A: I think it's supposed to be "The customer denied, shouting..." so no, it doesn't mean anything else ^^
