    CT - Man kills masked intruder, learns itís his son, New Fairfield

    Police say 15-year-old Tyler Giuliano was shot at about 1 a.m. Thursday in New Fairfield.

    Initial reports say a woman who was alone in the house believed someone was breaking in and called the teenís father, who lives next door. Police say he grabbed a gun and went outside to investigate. They say the father fired his gun when the masked youth went at him with a weapon. He then discovered it was his son.

    Vance says investigators donít yet know if the neighbor called Giuliano or police first.

    What a horrible scenario! The guilt and sorrow the father must be feeling has got to be horrendous!
    Prayers going out to the family.


    (That is such a nice neighborhood area in CT too).

    Alexis Scocozza was home alone and believed someone was breaking into her house. She called her brother, Jeffrey Giuliano, who lived next door. He grabbed his gun and went outside, confronting someone wearing a black ski mask and black clothing. He then shot the person when he saw a shiny weapon in his hand.

    Police officers arrived to find Tyler Giuliano lying in the driveway. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    State police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said, ďAll in all itís a tragedy.Ē He also said investigators were unsure if the neighbor called Giuliano or the police first.

    Jeffrey Giuliano is a fifth-grade teacher in New Fairfield, and his son was a student at New Fairfield High School.

    It appears the kid was up to no good but so sad for his father and I'm assuming his aunt. Why would he want to break into his aunt's house.

    This is such a tragedy for this family. It's heartbreaking. Wish he wasn't wearing a mask, (therefore the father not seeing his face), and maybe he couldn't be heard through the mask. Saying prayers for the father and family!

    Tyler went after his dad with the weapon he was carrying. Just heartbreaking for dad.

    The 15-year-old Connecticut boy killed by his father in a tragic case of mistaken identity died of ďmultiple gunshot wounds,Ē authorities said Friday.

    Tyler Giuliano, wearing a black mask and clutching a knife, was apparently breaking into his auntís home next door when he was gunned down by his dad early Thursday.

    Connecticut State Police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said an autopsy revealed that Giulianoís body was riddled with bullets. He would not say the number of times Tyler was shot, or where he was hit

    If this young man actually lunged at the father with a knife, I am not sure what mistaken identity has to do with any of it. Yes, I understand that father didn't know this was his son, but is the idea that he would have allowed this young man to lunge at him with a knife if he knew that was his son?
    Just my opinion

    I feel sorry for Dad, but not the son.

    Obviously he was up to something very very bad.

    Drug use ? Dungeon and Dragon player? Gang initiation?

    Hope we learn more....

    IIRC, I read somewhere that the father was just sitting next to the deceased and the still-masked body of the deceased "intruder" when LE took the mask off to reveal it was his son. It was not apparent if the father (a well-liked local school teacher) had already looked under the mask or if he knew right before the reveal.

    Such a nightmare for all involved.

    I bet dad is questioning his decision to shoot.
    This kid was up to something very bad and I bet his family had no idea what it was.

    I don't know. Something is off about this story. Either dad lied about the "masked intruder" lunging at him in a threatening manner so he could get away with shooting someone who scared him or kid was up to something horrible and the dad purposefully stopped him or...something else.

    Wouldn't this kid, if playing around or even trying to rob his own aunt have said, "Dad, it's me! I'm just fooling around!" Once he saw his father approach with a gun?

    The kid was allegedly dressed in black, wearing a mask, carrying a knife in the middle of the night. Sure sounds to me like he was up to no good.
    He might have had no desire to let his father know who he was.
    15 year olds are not necessarily harmless. One only has to read some of the threads on these boards.
    Just my opinion
