Sad story from Connecticut.
Conn. man kills masked teen then discovers it’s his son
NEW FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — During what appeared to be an attempted late-night burglary, a man fatally shot a masked teenager in self-defense outside his neighbor’s house and then discovered it was his son, state police said.
Police said 15-year-old Tyler Giuliano was shot at about 1 a.m. Thursday in New Fairfield, a town along the New York line just north of Danbury.
A woman who was alone in the house believed someone was breaking in and called the teen’s father, who lives next door, and he grabbed a gun and went outside to investigate, police said.
The father confronted someone wearing a black ski mask and black clothing and then fired his gun when the person went at him with a shiny weapon in his hand, police said.
When police officers arrived, the teen was lying in the driveway of the woman’s home with gunshot wounds and the father was sitting on the grass. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
