Father Shoots and Kills Son Over Missing Game

You have to wonder what’s running though someones mind as they try and harm their own flesh and blood.  In Houston, Texas, a man is accused of killing his own son in a dispute over a video game.  At around 4:15 am on Sunday, a drunken Ofelio Antonio Otero became upset over a video game that had gone missing.  He then began an argument with his wife over the location of his missing game and then turned his attention to his 17 year old son.

According to sources, as he yelled at his son he loaded a gun.  It was said that, “the son proceeded to try and knock the gun away and then run away.”  Unfortunately the young boy was shot once in the neck and died at the scene.  The father, Ofelio Antonio Otero ran like a coward from the scene and when found, had a 3 hour stand off with the HPD SWAT team.  He later surrendered and is now facing charges of murder and is being held with bail set at $100,000.

Our prayers go out to the mother, but all I can think and ask is how can one kill their own flesh and blood?

    Wait. Why were they awake at 4:15 AM on a Sunday? Did the father come home drunk or something?

    That’s not even the worst thing that’s happened near Houston recently. A teacher near Sugarland stabbed his newborn baby because he was found to be having sex with students. The baby is ok though.

    I don’t know what to think about this. I mean…my mom once misplaced my entire sega master system and games, but I didn’t shoot her.

    BTW, I later found the Sega Master System.

    Wow, that’s really unfortunate. I don’t blame the game at all, but the whole situation makes me feel sad. How the f**k can you do that to your own kid?

    He was drunk, so probably if he WASN’T drunk, things would’ve been different… but sadly they aren’t.

    There’s no reason for that, even though Video Games will be blamed, that’s just fucking stupid.

    I don’t understand people’s reasoning behind crap like this. What kind of sick man would kill his son over something like this?!

    My god, the media is going to have a field day with this one. I feel so bad for the mother, lost her child, and now her husband. I don’t get why people get so upset of a video game. He better spend the rest of his life behind bars.
