In Minneapolis, an 84-year-old man allegedly shot and killed his son, 36, who’d refused to buy the old man a cable TV subscription.
Pang Se Vang is charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of his son, 36-year-old Chue Vang.
Upon arrival, an officer called the suspect, who was still locked in a bedroom, and asked him to come outside with his hands up. Pang Vang responded that he couldn’t come out because he stabbed himself in the chest. He told the officer that he and his son were arguing and that he grabbed his hunting shotgun, pointed it at his son and shot him, according to the charges.
He said he then stabbed himself because he “did not want to settle the issue in court. He would settle the dispute with his son when they reached the afterlife.” according to the complaint.
Sans guns and knives, we hope.
Vang, the oldest person to be brought up on murder charges in the county in at least three decades, is being held on a one-million-dollar bond.
