Man fatally shoots son thinking he’s a burglar

by

In what he thought was an act of self-defense, a Connecticut man shot and killed an intruder outside his sister’s home. He then realized it was his son–15-year-old Tyler Giuliano.

On Thursday, Jeffrey Giuliano received a call from his sister, who lived next door, saying she believed someone was trying to break into her house. He grabbed his gun and confronted a figure in black clothes and a ski mask. He fired when he saw the person was wielding a shiny weapon.

Tyler, who was in 10th grade, died at at the scene. No charges have been filed yet.
