A dispute between a father and son took a deadly turn in Claremont Wednesday morning. Police received a 911 call around 8:20am of a man lying in the street from gunshot wounds. He was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.
Police took the man’s 71-year-old father into custody and recovered the firearm used in the shooting. Neighbors say the two were always fighting.
