PostSubject: US man kills baby son in front of cops    June 23rd 2010, 11:27 am

A young father fatally shot his three-month-old son in front of police in the US, then was shot and critically wounded by the officers after turning the gun on them, police say.

Adam Theall, 21, was outside a home in upstate New York on Tuesday morning when state troopers arrived after receiving emergency calls that he had threatened to kill the child.

He fired a shotgun at his son, Eithen Theall, then turned it on the three troopers who had arrived at the scene, according to State Police Captain Francis Coots.

They all fired at him.

"He was intent on killing his child," Coots said.

"The report from 911 was that he was going to kill his child. As soon as the trooper got out of the car, he did it."

The baby was declared dead at a hospital.

Theall was hit several times and was in critical condition.

Police had been called for domestic disputes in the past at the house, which is in a wooded, rural area of Oneida County northwest of New York City.

The child's mother was at the home during the attack.

"We did fire at him immediately after he shot the child," Coots said, adding that the troopers told Theall several times to drop the gun.

There were conflicting statements from police about whether Theall fired at the troopers.

"It's a shock to know someone personally that would do something like that, but I'm not surprised by what happened," neighbour Amanda Westcott told the Observer-Dispatch of Utica.

There were frequent disturbances at the home, Westcott said.

"That's all you could hear, is profanity and screaming and things hitting the wall," she told the newspaper.

Two other women were at the house with the child's mother when Theall opened fire.

There were also two other children younger than five in the house.

Theall, of the nearby city of Rome, was on probation for second-degree vehicular assault and had also been charged with misdemeanour assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
