(CMR) A 66-year old man is dead today after an altercation with his 19-year old son ended tragically.
Shortly after midday today CMR received multiple reports that a man had been killed in Hutland Road in North Side. The marl road rumors are that the young man wanted money and his father refused to give it to him and an argument ensued. Others have also claimed that the relationship between the parties was abusive and dysfunctional. There are also concerns about the mental health of the parties involved. The altercation allegedly took place “up in the land” – which is a farming area of North Side. It is further alleged that the scene was horrific and that the young man went home and called the police himself.
The police have since confirmed the death of one man in what they are calling “a serious incident”. They are at the scene this afternoon as the investigation continues. The body has not yet been removed as they process the crime scene.
North Side residents are shocked as this is the second murder in that usually quiet district in the past two years. Last September Azzan Sherieff (23) was critically injured during a domestic incident by then girlfriend Brianna Michelle Watler (25).
CMR has received photos and names of the involved parties but will publish once the police have released further information.
The matter is currently under investigation and further updates will follow.
