The man who allegedly shot and killed his son after a dispute at a home on Fillmore Road last week has been officially charged with murder.
Christopher Fulce Sr. is accused of shooting and killing his son, 19-year-old Charlin Fulce, Thursday afternoon. Fulce later died at a local hospital.
The fight stems from an argument about the adoption of a child, according to the probable cause affidavit.
Christopher reportedly wanted to adopt a child, but Charlin insisted on trying to find the child’s natural father. Christopher had been raising the child for some time, according to court documents.
Police say the disagreement turned into a fight, with the two throwing a child’s riding toy at one another and Charlin throwing a punch at his father’s chest, according to court documents.
A witness says that Christopher said “The day you hit me is the day you’re gonna (sic) die.” He then went upstairs, got a .22 caliber rifle, and started firing at Charlin’s car as he was trying to drive away, according to police.
One of the bullets hit Charlin before the car crashed into a tree, according to court documents.
