A 14-year old boy was fatally shot by his own father after he believed he was confronting an intruder in the basement of his home Tuesday morning. “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 boy, Georta Mack died at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
Police officials said the Hamilton County prosecutor’s office will decide whether there should be any charges against the father.
Is he guilty of murder or is this a tragic accident?
