NEW FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- A popular fifth-grade teacher fatally shot a masked, knife-wielding prowler outside his house during what appeared to be a late-night burglary attempt, only to discover he had killed his 15-year-old son, police say.
Police said 15-year-old Tyler Giuliano was shot at about 1 a.m. Thursday in New Fairfield, a town just north of Danbury.
The teacher's sister was alone in her house next door to his when she believed someone was breaking in. She called her brother, and he grabbed a gun and went outside to investigate, police said.
The father confronted someone wearing a black ski mask and black clothing and fired his gun when the person went at him with a shiny weapon in his hand, police said.

Can we expect a suicide or two in the coming months?
When do we get Fast & Furious II from Obama and Holder??
Maybe they think they can take down the Second Amendment with this tragic accident. But they don’t care — the Constitution is an obstacle to their crime and lies.
There has to be more to this story,
The man kills his son because he believe son is breaking into relatives house
Son is wearing a dark mask and clothing and is trying to break into his aunt’s house while carrying a large knife
There is definitely more to this
I always wonder how involved a parent truly is when he raises a criminal, especially the armed home invader variety.
I think this "dad" will find a way to get over it.
There has to be much more to this story. Why would a 15 year old be wearing a ski mask at 1am.
Suicide by adoptive father? According to the father, the masked man lunged at him with the knife. The son was adopted a few years earlier.
I agree with other members here. There is something not quite right about hanging out between your neighbors house and your own in the middle of the night wearing a skimask. Then charging your adoptive father with a knife knowing he is a gun owner.
Tabloid stuff, thanks, no thanks.
That's for sure. There's a little bit more info HERE.
I agree with the others who has assessed that there must be a lot more to this odd event. The fact that the son was adopted ads a very interesting angle to this. This is so strange & what is reported is no doubt just the tip.
Sounds pretty elementary to me....the kid saw his aunt as an easy mark and was going to burgle her place. His being “only 15” probably is a non-starter.
Also the drug tests to see if he was high or drunk...the boy may have been breaking in to rape her.
