58-year-old Frank Leon Huner, of Sedalia, Colorado, mistook his adult son for an intruder.
Frank opened fire on his son, killing him. He’s been arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder. He was released after posting a $50,000 bond.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Lauren LeKander says Huner called 911 at about 10:15 p.m. Saturday to report the shooting. He later said the victim was his son.
LeKander told KMGH-TV that investigators believe the victim is Huner’s son, but they are awaiting the coroner’s confirmation. His name hasn’t been released.
Sedalia is about 35 miles south of Denver.
