Authorities: Oklahoma son fatally shot after killing father

Authorities in northeastern Oklahoma say a man was fatally shot after he shot and killed his father at a home north of Pawhuska

PAWHUSKA, Okla. (AP) — Authorities in northeastern Oklahoma say a man was fatally shot after he shot and killed his father at a home north of Pawhuska.

Osage County Sheriff Eddie Virden says 45-year-old Travis Kirchner and 23-year-old Ty Kirchner were arguing about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday when Ty Kirchner shot his father.

Deputies at the scene initially said the father had shot the son.

Virden said another family member arrived and fatally shot Ty Kirchner at the home about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Tulsa.

The sheriff said both men were dead at the scene.

The person who shot the Ty Kirchner was not arrested and Virden said that person may have fired in self-defense.
