    Default Man Shoots, Kills Burglar at Sister’s House Only to Find Out It Was His Teen Son




    A fifth-grade teacher from New Fairfield, Connecticut was stricken with grief after he shot and killed a home invader who turned out to be his teenage son.

    Jeffrey Giuliano's sister, who lives next door, called him over to her residence yesterday around 1 AM to check on a suspected intruder. When he arrived, Giuliano spotted a person on the front lawn wearing black clothes and a black ski mask brandishing a "shiny object."


    Fearing for his safety, Giuliano shot the person, killing him instantly. It was later revealed that the prowler was Tyler Giuliano — Jeffrey's 15-year-old son.


    "I can't imagine what he felt when he took the mask off," one resident told CBS 2. "On a lot of different levels this is a real tragedy," said the town's First Selectman, John Hodge.


    No charges have been filed, and police are still investigating why Tyler was trying to break into his aunt's house in a ski mask.

    The article is written in a way to suggest that the kid was on the front lawn, not actively engaged in burglarizing the house or an immediate threat to safety. Suspicious, definitely, but why shoot? Call the cops, watch him, see what he's doing, but shooting someone on the front lawn is early overreaction.

    I think there is much more to this story than we know. It all seems a little too suspicious.

    More detail about the event. Some stuff that I didn't know before - 1) Tyler was adopted just a few years ago by this guy. 2) the story alludes to him having some trouble with the law, but doesn't say what it was [wrong - no history of trouble with the law]. 3) it sound like they were actually wrestling on the driveway before Jeffrey Giuliano used his gun. 4) He didn't know he shot his son until paramedics pulled the kid's mask off. The kid was wearing a black ski mask and had a knife. Doesn't sound good....

    Few Answers Yet in Dad's Shooting of Masked Son - Connecticut police say he didn't know until authorities removed ski mask

    (Newser) – Police in New Fairfield, Connecticut, say it will take several weeks to finish the investigation into the bizarre case in which a man shot and killed a knife-wielding masked prowler, only to learn it was his own teenage son. But the local News-Times clarifies one tragic detail: Jeffrey Giuliano didn't realize he shot 15-year-old Tyler until paramedics and police arrived and removed the teen's ski mask. He didn't do so himself. No charges have been filed. Some developments:

    • Giuliano told police that his sister called from next door about a prowler trying to break into her home. He grabbed a gun and confronted the youth, who was clad all in black and wielding a knife. Police say a scuffle ensued, and Giuliano shot the youth multiple times, reports the Hartford Courant.
    • Tyler, who was adopted by the Giulianos a few years ago, is described as a friendly kid without a history of trouble with the law. "He was just a sweet person and he always made everyone laugh," one classmate tells AP.
    • The News-Times says Tyler had unspecified trouble at his original home and was taken in temporarily by one local family (it went well) before being adopted by the Giulianos. It adds that his "status updates on a social networking platform called Lifestream often took on a more melancholy tone."

    Sorry, everyone. I misread the part where they said he did NOT have a history of trouble with the law.

    His mom apparently was a big drug user and lost custody. Tyler was a previous student of Giuliano's and Giuliano adopted him when his mom lost custody. It seems like there is a LOT of missing information here.

    ^ He didn't have trouble with the law, but did have unspecified trouble at a previous home. Regardless, this little shit brought a knife to his adopted father's sister's house. If a young man does that at 15, what is he going to be doing at 20? Sorry, but he deserved it. You don't attempt to break into a single woman's house with a knife and ski mask unless you plan to harm someone.

    Not to mention if it was some sort of weird prank he would have unmasked when he saw his father.

    Unless the teen was mute, he could have owned up and identified himself to his dad when he was busted terrorizing the neighbour aunt. Assuming the dad isn't lying, but it's too early in the damn morning to be that cynical.

    Attorney: Conn. man who shot masked son devastated

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A popular teacher who fatally shot a knife-wielding prowler in a ski mask and then learned it was his 15-year-old son is devastated and filled with questions about what the boy was doing, his attorney said Monday.

    Jeffrey Giuliano went outside with a gun around 1 a.m. Thursday when his sister called to say someone was trying to break into her house next door in New Fairfield, a town of nearly 14,000 people about 50 miles from New York city. Giuliano saw a masked person holding a weapon come toward him in a threatening manner and shot him, state police said. He learned later the person he killed was his son Tyler Giuliano.

    Jeffrey Giuliano, a fifth-grade teacher at a nearby school, and his wife "are not well," his attorney Gene Zingaro said.

    "Their family is hurting," Zingaro said. "They've been broken in half by this unspeakable tragedy, which really is three tragedies all in one."

    Giuliano and his wife don't know what Tyler, who didn't have any trouble with the law, was doing, Zingaro said.

    "The family has literally hundreds of questions as to what Tyler was doing, why he was wearing what he was and why he was carrying what he was," Zingaro said. "Those questions will probably go unanswered forever."

    Giuliano and his wife cooperated immediately with authorities, allowing them to search their home without a warrant and giving a sworn statement, Zingaro said. He called it a justifiable shooting and said Giuliano had a permit to carry the gun.

    "In my opinion, Mr. Giuliano will not be charged with any type of offense, weapon or otherwise," Zingaro said.

    Zingaro said when he arrived at the scene shortly after the shooting, Giuliano was inconsolable and physically ill. He said Giuliano cried and vomited.

    "He was in disbelief and a state of shock," Zingaro said.

    Shortly after the shooting Giuliano, feared it was his son he had shot, but he didn't receive confirmation for at least several hours, Zingaro said. The fears, Zingaro said, were based on the fact that Giuliano learned his son was missing and other reasons the attorney would not discuss, citing the ongoing investigation.

    Giuliano sustained a back injury during the shooting, Zingaro said, but he would not say if that was because of physical contact with Tyler.

    State police say they are continuing to investigate the shooting. No charges have been filed.

    Giuliano and his wife adopted Tyler and his sister about four years ago. The children's biological father was heading to prison, and the children would have gone into an orphanage if the couple, who had three other children, had not adopted them, Zingaro said.

    Tyler and his adoptive father shared a love of music and the Civilian Air Patrol, in which Tyler served as a cadet and enjoyed flying gliders and small aircraft, Zingaro said.

    Giuliano, affectionately known around Meeting House Hill School as Mr. G, grew up in New Fairfield, an hour's drive northwest of New Haven. He holds summer music and zoology camps for his students and plays guitar in a local rock band that raises money for charity, schools superintendent Alicia Roy said.

    Giuliano attended a memorial service for his son on Sunday night. He was "in a state of extreme anguish" and was "utterly devastated," Zingaro said.

    "It's a loss that cannot be measured," he said.

    New Fairfield First Selectman John Hodge provided a statement that was read on behalf of the Giuliano family at the memorial service, thanking the community for its support.

    "So many people have rallied behind this family in a way that touches our hearts and gives us strength," the statement said.

    A misguided 15 year old kid deserved to be shot and killed by his dad? No way in hell. Whatever happened to locking the doors and phoning the police? The dad doesn't deserve to have a gun if he's so trigger-happy.
