NC dad shot his son on Thanksgiving after argument about football anthem protests: police

Published

A North Carolina dad allegedly shot his 21-year-old son on Thanksgiving day after the young man got into a fight with his brother about athlete anthem protests.

WNCN reported that 51-year-old Jorge Luis Valencia Lamadrid had, according to a police warrant, been “drinking heavily” before his two sons got into an argument about athletes taking a knee in protest during Thanksgiving dinner.

The son Lamadrid allegedly shot started to become more confrontational with his brother and his dad told him to leave the house — and soon after, the brothers got into a physical fight.

The father tried to intervene, the report noted, but realized he couldn’t. Another of his children left the house and the victim continued to argue with Lamadrid, which led to the father attempting to kick that son out. At some point during the altercation, the father picked up his shotgun.

While the fight was still going on outdoors, the victim started “throwing patio furniture” and then threw a water bottle in his dad’s face, allegedly causing him to squeeze the trigger on the gun reflexively, shooting his son in the hand and leg.

Lamadrid told police that after he checked on his 21-year-old son who he shot, he went back inside the home and got dressed to wait for authorities to arrive.

The son suffered non-life-threatening injuries, the report noted. Lamadrid was arrested on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and bonded out of jail.
