Sexton Adams, of McIntosh, Ala., said he accidentally shot his 17-year-old son Darius (pictured) Friday morning after the boy allegedly came home behaving in a bizarre and aggressive manner. Adams said he tried scaring him with a gun, but it went off by mistake. He has not been charged in the shooting, according Call News.

Adams told the Washington County Sheriff’s office he felt threatened by the boy and had no intention of actually pulling the trigger. Darius was shot in the stomach with a .38 Special revolver.

Adams told deputies that his son had come home on Friday morning at around 2 a.m. and was acting totally out of character but did not offer specifics at the time. The 55-year-old father did tell investigators he felt threatened enough by his son’s behavior to get his revolver but that he had no intentions of shooting it. Adams thought that, by showing his son the gun, he would instill enough fear into him to change his erratic behavior.

He cocked the pistol and in the process, according to him, the pistol went off,” Washington County Sheriff Richard Stringer,”said.  “know, it’s just a very tragic thing. The man killed his own son. It just doesn’t get much worse than that.”

As officers spoke to folks who know Adams, no one said anything disparaging about the father. He has never been in trouble with law and is a good upstanding citizen who is held in high regard by his surrounding community. According to Stringer, the Adams case is still ongoing telling Call News, “We’ll learn more as time progresses. Of course, we will try to determine what caused this boy to become so irate and act the way he acted when his father shot him.”

Meanwhile, Stringer met with the Washington County District Attorney and the case is currently being weighed as to whether it will be presented to a grand jury.
