Does anyone know who was shot tonight?

Since: Dec 09

Location hidden

From a friend of a friend (who has a scanner), it happened on Wade Wiley Road. A 17 yo shot his father. On the 911 call, the boy said that he was protecting his mother. The dad died.

That's all I know, and it came from someone else who heard it on the scanner. Very sad.
takes alot of adrinaline

I heard it on my scanner sometime after 11 pm. I didn't hear the age of the son. I couldn't help but pray for the family. You never know what is going on in some homes. Self-defense is hopefully going to be used in this case. Poor guy was taking up for his mom, he should be recognized and taken care by our local counselors somehow. There is no telling what him and his mom went through with this tragedy. Just be there for them to help out in anyway. They are human like us that have obviously went through alot of pain. Pray for them, DEAR FRIEND!

Well guest. Hate to tell ya but Hunters Step grandmother, mother of Hunters step dad, is at work today and she said her son was perfectly fine. I suggest you stop spreading rumors. It was NOT Vince that was shot and killed. The kid's name that did the shooting does not even begin with the letter H.

I received a phone call less than an hour ago and it's pretty straight that it was Polly's son who did the shooting. His name is definitely not 'Hunter.' I know everyone is curious and/or in shock over this. If anyone watched earlier local news on TV, they showed the location of the shooting, and if you know the family personally, you would recognize this location. Please pray for the family.

its in the messenger today as a Vernon man who was shot by his son for threating to kill both of them. apperently the man told the son to kneel down and pointed the gun at him and told him he was fixing to meet his god. Now this is all in the messenger today front page and I know it is because i printed it. So not trying to spread any rumors.
