A mentally troubled young man has died at the hands of his own father.
The shooting happened around 4:40pm in the 6000 block of Kleinpeter Rd. in East Baton Rouge Parish.
Officials say the father was trying to get the gun away from his son after he threatened to kill himself and others. That’s when the shooting happened.
As of now, the shooting is justified and a self-defense, which means the father will not be arrested.
As more details become available, the story will be updated.
