A father has been charged and accused of killing his own 15-year-old son,  according to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office.

The incident happened shortly after 6 p.m. in Paradis when deputies responded to a 911 complaint of a shooting in the 100 block of Lynn Drive on Sunday.

Ed Veillon, the suspect, was also injured but was later taken into custody, according to The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office. 

The father was charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.
