AUSTRALIA - Luke Batty, 11, killed by dad at Tyabb sports oval, 12 Feb 2014
OMG! This is horrendous. The boy was only 11!! I want to know who this animal is that would beat a boy of 11 to death.
POLICE have shot a man after he reportedly beat a boy to death at a sports oval in Melbourne’s southeast tonight.
Emergency services were called to the oval on Frankston-Flinders Rd in Tyabb about 6.30pm.
Paramedics frantically tried to revive the 11-year-old boy, but he died at the scene from horrific head injuries.
His attacker sustained gunshot wounds to the chest and was flown to The Alfred hospital in a serious condition.
Witnesses told the Herald Sun when officers arrived, the man turned on them with a knife, forcing them to shoot him.

It's coming up in google search that the man (father?) used a cricket bat!! Just searching for an article to include MSM quote. Oh my god, I am feeling sick right now.

Police shoot boy's attacker at sports oval

Police shoot boy's attacker at sports oval in Tyabb ... after he reportedly beat a boy to death with a cricket bat at a sports oval in Melbourne's southeast tonight.
But this is the article and I can't see the reference to the bat. Maybe they are reconfirming?

Emergency services remain at the scene of a police shooting Tyabb that occurred earlier this evening.
Emergency services were called to attend the oval on Frankston-Flinders Road around 6.30pm after a boy sustained head injuries.
He was treated by paramedics at the scene but has died.
A confrontation with a man aged in his 50s then took place and the man was shot in the upper body.
The exact circumstances surrounding the incidents are yet to be established.
A number of police units are on scene including local police, local detectives and the Homicide Squad.
The investigation into the incident will be oversighted by Professional Standards Command.

What is happening in Melbourne? In all my years here I have never seen so many senseless deaths. I live in the south east where this has happened, Last week it was the women murdered in her yard just down the road from me. Today at my local shops I came out to my car only to see a drug deal going down.
This man has been shot. I hope these policemen are treated fairly and don't have to go through all the scrutiny that other cases have done. R.I.P. to the young boy. So Sad.
