Bizarre North Carolina shooting involves grandfather, son, grandson

North Carolina deputies found two people shot in a home after a deadly domestic fight escalated between a father and son on July 7 around 7 p.m.

A grandfather shot his son, which allegedly prompted his grandson to fatally shoot his grandfather in defense of his own father.

Sheriff Peter White "said a preliminary investigation indicates that Lloyd Woodlief first shot his son. Then the 11-year-old boy shot his grandfather," reports CNN. The shootings took place in the small town of Kittrell, North Carolina.

Lloyd Woodlief, 84, "had been shot once with a 12-gauge shotgun and 'died shortly thereafter,' the sheriff said," further reports CNN. "His son, 49-year-old Lloyd Peyton Woodlief, had been shot with a 22-caliber pistol, added White. The resident of nearby Henderson, North Carolina, was being treated at Duke Medical Center in Durham as of Tuesday afternoon." His condition is unknown at this time.

White said charges are pending at this time, but he did not specify who might be charged, or for what.
