Herman said the man told investigators he heard noises in his home and went to investigate. He encountered the 17-year-old boy in his daughter's bedroom. There was a confrontation and the teen was shot. He died at the scene.
No other injuries were reported. However, Herman said, the father complained of possible panic attacks after the shooting and was taken to a nearby hospital.
Herman said investigators learned the teen was a friend of the daughter's and she had let the boy into the home. Deputies recovered a handgun at the scene.
Expect the daughter to be blamed for this tragedy and not guns.
