FREMONT — Investigators say a Bay Area father attacking an adult son with a nail-studded baseball bat was shot to death by another son.
Fremont police say the shooting death of 48-year-old David Weatherton was a case of self-defense and the older son was released after questioning.
The San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/W9LFxw) says Weatherton was attacking his 25-year-old son last week with a bat studded with nails when his 27-year-old son intervened.
When Weatherton turned to attack his older son, police say the father was shot in the chest and killed.
The younger son wasn't seriously hurt.
