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.
