An attorney for a Connecticut man who fatally shot his son says state police want access to his computer and phone to try to determine why the boy was out at night wearing a ski mask and armed with a knife.
Gene Zingaro says his client Jeffrey Giuliano is cooperating with the request because he and his wife want the same answers.
Police say Giuliano went outside with a gun around 1 a.m. on Sept. 27 when his sister called to say someone was trying to break into her house next door in New Fairfield. Authorities say Giuliano saw a masked person holding a shiny object come toward him in a threatening manner and shot him.
He later was told the person he killed was his son Tyler.
Police are investigating the shooting. No charges have been filed.
