DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — Authorities are actively investigating after a man called 911 Saturday night to report shooting an intruder in his Sedalia home. During that call, the man told authorities the intruder was his son.

According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, 58-year-old Frank Leo Huner Jr. called authorities Saturday around 10:15 p.m. saying he had just fatally shot someone he believed was an intruder breaking into his home in the 3400 block of Elk Canyon Court.

He identified the intruder as his son during that call.

The Douglas County Coroner has identified the victim as 33-year-old Nicholas Huner. Officials say he died of a gunshot wound.
