An armed confrontation between a father and son ended with both men dead in Alabama, authorities say.
The two both shot and killed each other during a dispute over dogs, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
Kelvin Nicholas Coker, 32, had shot at several of the dogs owned by him and his father, killing two, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.
After the father, Kelvin James Coker, 60, found one of the dog’s dead Saturday night, he grabbed a pistol and drove to his son’s Wagarville home to confront him, Sheriff Richard Stringer told WPMI.
The son reportedly told his father he killed at least one dog. The father fired a shot, hitting his son in the thigh, according to the sheriff, WALA reported.
The son fired back, up close with a shotgun, killing his dad, Stringer told WALA.
The son died from his gunshot wound at the scene, according to a sheriff’s office news release.
