NEW FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) -- Police say the masked teenager shot to death by his father in a small Connecticut community had a knife.

State police Lt. J. Paul Vance say 15-year-old Tyler Giuliano died of multiple gunshot wounds outside a home in New Fairfield.

Police say Tyler's father, Jeffrey Giuliano, had gone outside with a gun when his sister called from next door early Thursday to say someone was trying to break into her house.

Giuliano saw a masked person dressed all in black and holding a knife. Police say the person came toward Giuliano, and Giuliano shot him, only to realize that he had killed his own son.

No charges have been filed.
