This occured outside the home, maybe he should have used more caution.
from what I understand andor have read at this point, his son(15yrs old) turned and made a beeline towards him when confronted with what at least appeared to be something shiny.
I can't help but wonder if this kid FORGOT he had a mask on. Too late now. I hope this man doesn't blame himself. I know he just wants his son back. They aren't planning to press charges BUT they are doing a check to make sure this firearm was legally registered in CT(they live on the border of NY). They said results from probe will take a week. I believe he will face charges for that issue if it comes back incorrect.
