Illustration for article titled Father Who Wanted To Keep Watching Football Shoots And Kills Son

David Carrender's 19-year-old son, Wyatt, was shot and killed in their Martinsville, Ind., home Sunday. Cops say David, 49, is the killer.


The Morgan County (Ind.) sheriff told the Indianapolis Star that David and Wyatt had been out at a restaurant or bar watching football. They eventually began to argue over whether they ought to go home. As the Star described it:

The son wanted to go home. The father did not.

The argument continued after the pair returned home, Downey said. “It appears the father retrieved a handgun and shot his son, it appears, six times.”

[Sheriff Robert] Downey said David Carrender is thought to have been drinking.
