In a tearful confession, an Indiana man confessed that he “killed the thing that he loved most in the world,” after shooting his son in front of the son’s pregnant girlfriend – over football.
Witnesses reportedly told police that 49-year-old David Carrender was drinking while watching a football game with his son, Wyatt,19, at Buffalo Wild Wings Bar & Grill. According to police, an argument broke out when Wyatt, who was the designated driver, took his dad home before he was ready to leave. The argument reportedly escalated into a physical confrontation when they arrived home, with the son allegedly head-butting his dad, sending him down a flight of stairs.
That’s when police say, Carrender got a gun and shot his son several times.
Tony White, a neighbor told a local reporter that he “heard a series of 4-5 gunshots real quick. I heard what I assumed was the young boy’s girlfriend scream. She was asking him (the father) why he had done it. She was just in terrible shape.”
According to White, police had been called to the same home earlier last summer after his wife witnessed a similar incident. “They got out in the yard and got to fighting, screaming. Someone was yelling, ‘Put the gun away, put the gun away. Nothing really happened after that incident. That blew over.”
Police confirmed Wyatt Carrender’s girlfriend, Sabrina Canfield, witnessed the shooting. Canfield, who is three months pregnant said, “I loved him to pieces. He was my best friend.”
