A father in Cincinnati fatally shot his son after mistaking him for an intruder.
The unidentified man dropped his 14-year-old son Georta Mack off at the school bus stop, but unbeknownst to him, the teen returned home, according to police. The father heard a noise in the basement and grabbed a handgun to see what the commotion was. Before realizing it was his child, the 72-year-old shot Mack in the neck.
He could be heard crying in his frantic call to 911, saying, “I just shot my son by accident. Oh God. Get here quick. Please hurry.”
After arriving at the scene, medics rushed Mack to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead around 8:15 a.m.
Officials say the father is being interviewed by police and has been cooperative. He will not be charged in the incident, prosecutors announced Wednesday.
