After watching his grandfather, 84, shoot his dad, NC 11-year-old kills gramps with a shotgun
WTVD reports that an 84-year-old man in Kittrell, North Carolina was shot dead by his 11-year-old grandson on Tuesday.
Vance County Sheriff Deputies were called to the home of 84-year-old Lloyd Woodlief late Monday night. A family argument had turned violent, Vance County Sheriff Peter White said, leading Lloyd Woodlief to shoot his 49-year-old son, Lloyd Peyton Woodlief, with a .22 caliber pistol.
Authorities said that they believe the unnamed 11-year-old then shot his grandfather with a 12-gauge shotgun.
Lloyd Peyton Woodlief was taken to Duke Medical Center, where is he recovering from his wounds. His father died on the scene shortly after authorities arrived.
The 11-year-old was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon. “A juvenile petition has been taken out against the 11-year-old,” Sheriff White said. “He is in the custody of juvenile services.”
