(Scroll down for video) A 15-year-old boy was in tears after he shot and killed his own father.
The Florida teen was home when his father began beating his mother.
He decided to defend his mother by shooting at his father.
Christopher Albano, 35, came home drunk early Wednesday morning, when he got into an argument with his wife and started hitting her.
The 15-year-old boy rushed to her defense by grabbing a gun and shooting his abusive father.
The father was pronounced dead at the scene.
There were two other children in the home at the time.
When police arrived, the teen was seen sitting on the side of the road crying and being consoled by others. His mother was also seen crying.
The teen was taken into custody, but was not arrested. Police are still deciding whether to file charges.
A classmate of the teen shooter said that he is a quiet kid, who never was in any trouble and never got into fights. “He’s just a normal kid,” the friend said.
The investigation is still ongoing.
