Moments later, the man said the man he had shot was his adult son, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said Sunday.

The person who was shot was later pronounced dead, investigators said. The Douglas County Coroner's Office will formally identify the body to confirm whether it is Huner's son.

Huner, 59, was booked on a charge of second-degree murder, but sheriff's officials said that could change as they continue to investigate.
