NEW FAIRFIELD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) A New Fairfield man fatally shot a masked teenager in self-defense, only to discover the teenager was his son.
Tyler Giuliano, 15, was shot to death outside a home on Meetinghouse Hill Circle at about 1 a.m. Thursday in what appeared to be an attempted burglary. A woman in the home believed someone was trying to break in so she called her brother, Jeffrey Giuliano, who lives next door, CBS 2′s Lou Young reported.
Jeffrey Giuliano charged across the lawn with his personal gun in his hand and confronted a man dressed in black and wearing a ski mask, Young reported.
WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reports
There appeared to be a weapon in the masked intruders hand, Young reported. Jeffrey Giuliano fired and the intruder fell to the ground. It was then that he realized that the person he shot and killed was his own son.
I cant imagine what he felt when he took the mask off, resident Tin DiKit told Young.
On a lot of different levels this is a real tragedy, New Fairfield First Selectman John Hodge added.
When police officers arrived at the scene, they found a distraught Giuliano, a fifth-grade science teacher, overwhelmed with grief, Young reported.

I can’t imagine.
You can’t be too careful.
Im saddened by this, but not too saddened. The kid choose a path to which there are never happy endings.
Somehow I knew even before I saw the pictures of the robbers.
If the facts are as stated, responsibility for this tragedy rests squarely on the son’s head. I can’t imagine what the poor father must be feeling.
I’m sure the kid was just out having a little fun. Think the lady was to be the object of a little robbery and rape?
Probably just a peep artist. I doubt if the family was that used to guns, the kid would even think of the rape part.
I have a bad feeling about this one, that there was something really bad going on with that boy. Much rides on what he was holding in his hand.
Apparently the boy had a small gun, and approached his father with it “in a menacing manner”.
Did the dad just go off shooting with no words? Was the kid actually trying to break in when confronted?
Such bad reporting by the typical "news" media. Almost as bad as when they quickly report something "bad" about Romney only to later find it was all a joke (they can't wait to say something bad about him), but gaffes by Obama need to wait to be "verified" (translation: approved by the Obama thugs and only after they have come up with a response to CYA).
So was there a weapon?
That any male makes it through the teenage years is a minor miracle.
That man is going to need a strong support group, and a man of the cloth.
I doubt I could maintain my own sanity after such a tragedy.
OK, the report linked above gives more info. Looked like the kid threatened his own father. Pretty sad.
Suicide by parent? That’s one way to leave a lasting impression.
And on a school night, too.
I once heard it said the "the failure of the son to act responsibly is the failure of the father to teach responsibility." At one point in my life I totally agreed with that... I'm not too sure that I do so as much as I used to. I have an 8 year old that I am doing everything in my power to raise as a good Christian boy... I have him in a Christian school and am very involved in his life (without smothering him.) I face a battle with some outside influence every day, and am thankful that he will talk to me and ask me questions so that I can explain the "rights and wrongs" involved with whatever the situation might be. But what if I wasn't able to be there enough? In today's world, a parent that is trying to do everything right in raising his child is outnumbered by liberal enablers of all types at every turn and has an uphill battle.
Why is a 15 y/o running around outside at 1am on a school night? (rhetorical)
I have a feeling he had ill intent towards his aunt. And from there it gets really icky in a hurry.
Years ago in Arkansas a state trooper worked an accident in which two females died. The bodies were so badly mangled that the trooper did not recognize that one of the girls was his daughter. He found out after she was identified at the morgue.
