Dad fatally shoots son he mistook for an intruder

An armed man who believed he was confronting an intruder in the basement of his home Tuesday morning instead fatally shot his 14-year-old son, who was supposed to be on his way to school, police said.
Police said the teen had headed to the bus stop but apparently came back home through a back door. The man said he heard a noise in the basement. Police said when the father opened a door within the basement, the boy appeared.

"He scared me!" the distraught father said in his 911 call shortly before 6:30 a.m. "I thought he was in school. I heard noise, so I went downstairs looking and he jumped out at me. .... Oh, God. Get here quick!"
The man told police he accidentally shot his son with a .45-caliber handgun. After initially telling the 911 dispatcher the boy was hit in the chest, he then said it was in the neck. The dispatcher told him to put the gun on the kitchen counter, then talked him through first aid steps and tried to calm him until police and emergency vehicles arrived.

The boy died at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Police identified him as Georta Mack. They didn't immediately release the name of the father, who's heard in the tape repeatedly shouting, "Oh, God, please hurry! Oh, God!"
Police officials said the Hamilton County prosecutor's office will decide whether there should be any charges against the father.
"These types of tragedies are so horrific, they're even unimaginable," Police Chief Eliot Isaac told reporters.
A police officer at the scene told reporters that the boy had apparently decided he wasn't going to school and returned home through the back door.

Cincinnati has made reducing gun violence a top priority for 2016. Isaac said the shooting Tuesday underscored some important messages.

He said those who have guns in their homes should get training and make sure the weapons are kept secured.
Referring to indications the boy had planned to skip school, Isaac said children should "tell the truth: make sure your parents know where you are, absolutely."

this man just carelessly pulled an Oscar Pistorius on his own son! It's quite a pity that Us gun laws won't do anything to change this everyday error-prone shootings. Like they said, the boy also had a part to play in his own death because he was trying to be a mischievous truant. We all did that once abi?

When everyone is allowed to carry gun, this is what happen. Assuming the man only carried a stick, he will have be able to manage the situation. Now he has himself to blame and the only way he can immortalize the young lad whose life was cut short is to join President Obama to put strigent control on the use of gun.

My eyes watered while reading this. I imagine him saying 'hurry...'. and his son ended up dying. No need to try him/sentence him to prison cos he is already there.
Distress, neurological jail, emotional trauma, physiological shutdown, blurry/confused memory....all will confine him for life.

Nope! It's their right and second amendment. What they need to do is proper training, medical and background check up. Omo! There are some places in us that Nigeria is better than, so the need for guns comes in handy .

Hey it could have been an intruder. Is that not why donald trump says we should have guns. The man should not cry. He should imagine what would have happened if it was an intruder

This was thesame thing that Oscar Pristorious did that South African blacks wanted to eat him raw. All hell went loose because a black person was involved. Now that is it between father and son, people are commenting here and saying awww, so sad and pitying the father. Bloody hypocrates!

Anonym 1:08pm, shut the hell up!! I'm not sure you read the facts surrounding pistorious case very well, but if you did, u lack basic understanding. There's no way in hell you can compare the two cases. They're so diametrically different that it's like day and night. I'm not gonna waste my time identifying circumstances pertaining to each case that make them dissimilar as I do not know your level of comprehension. But suffice it to state that the two cases are totally different.
