Dad Kills Son Over Missing Video Game

Houstonian Ofelio Antonio Otero, 40, allegedly shot and killed his 17-year-old son yesterday morning after arguing with him about a missing video game.

Otero had been drinking heavily when he started arguing with his wife about said video game. His son, Ignacio, joined the argument and then Otero loaded his gun. According to Houston Police Department authorities, Ignacio first tried to knock the gun away from his father and then ran from him.


Otero shot his son in the neck. He fled as his son died at the scene.

Three hours later, he surrendered to an HPD SWAT team after a standoff.

The Houston Chronicle reports:

Otero, who is facing a murder charge, has a prior criminal history in Harris County that includes a DWI conviction.
