A man fatally shot his adult son Wednesday at their home in the Covina area after the younger man broke in through a glass door, authorities said.

The shooting occurred around 2:30 a.m. in the 19800 block of East Golden Bough Drive in an unincorporated area north of Walnut, said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Juanita Navarro.

Gregory Joseph Feese, 48, of Covina, died at the scene, said coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter.

Deputies went to the scene after receiving a 911 call of a family disturbance, said Deputy Sara Rodriguez.

“When the deputies arrived, they discovered the homeowner, a man in his 70s, had shot and killed his live-in son,” Rodriguez said.

“Homicide detectives have learned the father shot his son after the son forcibly broke into the residence through a large glass door,” Rodriguez said. “Homicide detectives are interviewing the mother and father at the Walnut (Sheriff’s) Station.”

Sheriff’s Lt. Steve Jauch said it’s unclear why the father felt threatened, but he was aware that the person who broke into the home was his son.

“Preliminary information is that he was aware it was his son, but in terms of the threat that he felt and his state of mind, that’s critical information that we need to pin down in our interview with him,” Jauch said.
