Father accused of shooting son, then himself

A son, trying to defend his mother, is shot by his own father in their Wellington home.

Police say 43-year-old Jay Medore and his wife were arguing, and their 18-year-old son, Jayson, tried to intervene. The father whipped out a handgun, shot his son in the shoulder, and, then, shot himself in the head.

The elder Medore has a criminal record with two prior arrests for domestic battery, DUI and violating probation. "I'm just shocked and very upset to hear what happened. My heart goes out to the wife and Jayson, and we couldn't be more upset by it," says neighbor Lynn Henderson.

According to the sheriff's office, Jayson will be ok; however, his father is in very critical condition.
