Lutz father shoots son

Posted: Updated:
LUTZ (FOX 13) -

A father in Lutz says he was forced to shoot his own son.

It happened just after 11 last night at a home on San Rio Circle. Henry Harris told detectives his son Eric came home from the USF football game and appeared to be drunk.

Harris says he got into a fight with his son, and his son started choking him. Harris broke free, and he says his son came at him again.

That's when Harris says he pulled out a gun and shot his son in the chest.

The son is now in the hospital in stable condition.

Harris has a license to carry a concealed weapon.

No charges have been filed, and the investigation continues.
