An Oklahoma man killed his 13-year-old son after chasing his other son's truck and firing a rifle at it, Oklahoma's KOAM reports.


Tony Rutherford was called by neighbors who saw "suspicious activity," near his older son's house, which was supposed to be empty.

Rutherford showed up and saw someone driving his older son's truck. He gave chase, firing several shots from his rifle.

Rutherford killed the person driving the truck—who turned out to be his 13-year-old son.

Rutherford's lawyer says his client did nothing wrong.

“Tony and his family are very sorry for the loss of their child, and time will reveal the circumstances surrounding this unfortunate incident which does not constitute a crime,” he told the Tulsa World.
