SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) — Police in a northeast Kansas community have detained a 14-year-old boy after the fatal shooting of his father.
KMBC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/19RWTxX ) the shooting occurred around 3 p.m. Tuesday during a custody exchange in the Johnson County community of Shawnee.
Police said the boy's mother and stepfather had taken him to a business in rural Shawnee to exchange custody with the mother's ex-husband.
Investigators believe the boy walked over to a car where his father was waiting and shot him with a handgun. The mother and stepfather were inside the building at the time.
The father's name has not been released. Police say they have no other suspects and don't yet know a possible motive.
