He shot, the person fell and died at the scene. Several hours later, Giuliano learned he had shot and killed his own son. This good kid with an easygoing personality had apparently tried to break into his aunt's house, and was stopped by his own father.State police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said the boy had never been in trouble with the law, and some of those who knew him described him as a good kid with an easygoing personality. Investigators and acquaintances said they were at a loss to explain what he was doing outside dressed all in black and carrying a weapon."Certainly, that is the major question we are trying to answer at this point," Vance said.State police said the shooting happened after Jeffrey Giuliano got a call from his sister next door saying that someone might be trying to break into her home in their neighborhood of attractive colonial-style houses.Giuliano grabbed a handgun and went outside to investigate, troopers said.He confronted someone in a ski mask and opened fire when the person came at him with something shiny in his hand, police said.
I cannot imagine the crushing pain this man must feel. He lost his son, his son's memory surely will come out of this tarnished if not outright destroyed, and somewhere in there he has to cope with the guilt of having pulled the trigger. That he didn't know will be a bitter comfort at best.
What a sad story, with no good come from it.
