Tragedy as Father Shoots Dead Masked Burglar Trying to Break Into His Sister’s House… Before Realizing It’s His OWN SON

A 15-year-old Connecticut boy was shot dead by his father on Thursday, as he tried to break into his aunt’s home, police said.

His face hidden beneath a black ski mask, Tyler Giuliano was spotted by his aunt, Alexis Scocozz,as he set about what officers believe was an attempted late-night burglary.

Home alone and frightened, Scocozz sought help from Giuliano’s father, Jeffrey, and also her next-door neighbour.

Mr Giuliano grabbed his gun and went outside to investigate, not knowing that the perpetrator was in fact his adopted son, Tyler.

Police arrived at the aunt’s New Fairfield property to find Tyler dead, his father distraught

He approached the masked teen outside the New Fairfield property, taking note of a shiny weapon in his hand and opening fire.

When police officers arrived at around 1am they found a distraught Mr Giuliano sitting on the grass next to the aunt’s home, his son lying in the driveway with gunshot injuries.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

All in all it’s a tragedy,’ state police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said.

Mr Giuliano, a fifth-grade teacher in town, hasn’t returned a message seeking comment on what happened.

Tyler was a student at New Fairfield High School, a short walk from the neighborhood where he was killed.

Superintendent of Schools Alicia Roy sent parents an email about what happened, Danbury’s The News-Times newspaper reported.

‘Our district has experienced a tragedy that has affected us deeply,’ she wrote, adding that students weren’t told of the killing because all the facts weren’t clear.

No charges have been filed. State police are investigating. An autopsy on the boy is planned.
