ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Investigators in Orange County said a teen shot and killed his father early Wednesday morning.
The 15-year-old boy was quickly taken into custody, but has not been arrested after the shooting on Sun Dew Drive in Avalon Park.
"This is a domestic (incident) between father and son," said Orange County Sheriff's Office Lt. Paul Hopkins. "During this incident there were four people in the home."
Detectives said a woman called 911 and told them her husband, 35-year-old Christopher Albano, came home intoxicated and hit her. She said that is when her son shot Albano, according to a news release.
"We responded and discovered that a domestic disturbance occurred where a 15-year-old and a 35 year-old were involved," Hopkins said.
Several people gathered outside the home shocked and in tears after learning that the father was shot multiple times in the back and died from his injuries.
"We have our homicide investigators on the scene, along with our CSI to collect any evidence and speak to the witnesses and canvas the area to see if anybody heard anything," Hopkins said.
Authorities said they are not searching for anyone else related to the incident after taking the teen into custody.
The investigation is ongoing.
