July 22, 2019

STAFFORD, Va. (AP) — Authorities in Virginia say a man shot and killed his grandfather, then called 911 and admitted to it.

Stafford County Sherriff’s officials said 24-year-old Brandon Cohen called 911 Sunday and said he’d killed his grandfather. News outlets report that when deputies arrived to the mobile home they found 78-year-old Edward Ennis Jr. unresponsive and suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities charged Cohen with first-degree murder, among other charges. He’s being held without bond in jail.

The shooting is under investigation and a motive hasn’t been released.
