AVALON PARK, Fla. — Authorities say a central Florida man has been shot and killed by his teenage son in a domestic dispute.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, the shooting happened early Wednesday in Avalon Park.

Deputies say the man was intoxicated and hitting his wife. That's when the 15-year-old allegedly shot his father.

The woman told 911 dispatchers that her husband had come home drunk and hit her, and then her son shot him.

The teen was taken into custody but no charges have been filed.

Four other people were in the home at the time of the shooting, but no other injuries were reported.

I don't own a gun but it sounds like a scumbag got what he deserved. I guess in aimee's world it would have been better for the husband to kill the wife with his fists or a knife, or a bat, or a golf club..... Aimee does not care who dies as long as a gun is not involved; OJ Simpson is her hero

hey aimee - I wonder if the woman whose live the young man saved regrets there was a gun so readily available and the young man knew how to use it? My guess is the young man regrets nothing, unless he regrets not having shot the sorry sob sooner. And anyone who beats his wife, gun owner or otherwise, deserves to be shot. Obviously, aimee needs to spend some time at a battered woman's shelter. Maybe then she would come to appreciate the young man's actions. Or not. After all, we are dealing with aimee. Bless her heart.

Grannies Maddjack, Conway, and Packman:

I did not know you favored patricide as a part of gun rights.. You really DO think that a gun is the SOLUTION to everything.. I don't happen to agree with you.. I think this young man probably has a great deal of regret to live with..!!!

Is that all you can say? Oh! Oh! A feather duster would have resolved the issue of violence upon his mother. Wink Wink, got it.
