Attorney: Conn. dad who shot masked son devastated

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — An attorney says a popular Connecticut teacher who fatally shot a knife-wielding prowler in a ski mask and then learned it was his 15-year-old son says he's devastated and filled with questions about what the boy was doing.

Jeffrey Giuliano's lawyer tells The Associated Press on Monday that the family is "broken in half" by the tragedy. He says he doesn't expect Giuliano to face criminal charges.

Tyler Giuliano died outside his next-door neighbor's house in New Fairfield. His father went outside with a gun Thursday when his sister called to say someone was trying to break into her house.

Jeffrey Giuliano saw a masked person holding a weapon. Police say the person came toward Giuliano and Giuliano shot him, only to be told later that it was his son.

That poor guy must be living a nightmare. That is a truely tragic situation.

Well, all I am going to say about this right now is I am glad that the lawyer believes the father won't press charges (I am assuming for now that the lawyer has formed this conclusion based on good information from the DA's office).

That guy will never be the same. I understand it was an accident and what the kid was doing is beyond me but that incident will haunt him the rest of his life.

And I think that is the worst part of this. The father will have to live out the rest of his days knowing he personally killed his own son. I doubt it will be little consolation that it was justified, and I doubt any sentence would be more punishment than he is living through in his own mind...

Indeed, a tragedy beyond comprehension. Not quite the same circumstance , but always a fear of mine too, that one of my grown daughters would decide to crash at the house unannounced in the middle of the night. Since they've been out of the house I've always stressed to the them to call ahead if stopping by, but if it's late and they've been out partying or whatever, who knows if they'd remember.

I guess we will never know what the kid was doing. A ski mask a knife and lurking outside I guess it was his Aunts house. Was he trying to play a prank or scare her or maybe something more sinister? No one will ever know.

I stand by my belief that if the father didn't shoot his kid we would be reading a news story about some guys son or some girls brother who broke into their house and killed them with a knife.

Or maybe he wasn't going to play a prank, just because the kid knew the person's house he was outside, doesn't mean he wasn't up to no good.

I agree with you. The kid wasn't dressed for a date, you know? Also, he made an aggressive move towards his father and he likely knew he was armed. From what I can see in the circumstances, the kid wasn't there to tell the house occupants they were his favorite relatives... he was there with far more sinister motives.

Constantly remind them to call first or knock until you get up. Tell them about this situation although I dont think they would be wearing ski masks and carrying a knife. But still its the point if you dont know whos coming in its a bad situation.
