Two days before Christmas a father in Wayne County, Tennessee, shot and killed his 25-year-old son in what law enforcement describes as self-defense.
The Tennessean reports that 47-year-old Greg Bratcher shot and killed his 25-year-old son, Jansen Bratcher, Sunday at 2:20 p.m. The father called 911 after shooting his son and police arrived to find the father performing first aid in hopes of saving his son’s life.
According to Fox 17 Nashville, law enforcement officials indicate that “all information suggests that Bratcher was acting in self defense” when he shot his son.
The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office used released a statement via Facebook from Brent Cooper, District Attorney for 22nd Judicial District, saying, “At this time, all indications are that Greg Bratcher was acting in self defense when he fatally shot his son, so no charges are being sought at this time.”
