A Maryland teen is charged with fatally shooting his father at their home, police said.
Baltimore County police responded to a shooting inside a home in the 8100 block of Kirkwall Court in Towson, Maryland, around 10pm Sunday night after a 911 caller reported that the son shot his father, said Corporal Shawn Vinson.
When officers arrived, police said they found 46-year-old Devin Vallade on the second floor of the house with a gunshot wound to the upper body.
He died at the scene.
Neighbors told ABC2 that Vallade was an Iraqi War veteran.
Vallade’s son was taken into custody, Vinson said.
Online court records show that 19-year-old Devin Vallade II has been charged with first- and second-degree murder.
He’s being held without bond.
Vinson didn’t know what led up to the shooting. He said two other family members who were at the home in Towson when the shooting occurred were not injured.
