Boy shoots father who held mother at knifepoint

SELLERSVILLE, Pennsylvania (AP) -- A man who had recently left a mental health facility killed his wife after an argument and was shot to death by the couple's 15-year-old son, police said.

"I really can't put into words the tragedy this is for the boys that are involved in this," Pennridge Regional Police Chief David Mettin said.

The 15-year-old son and his teenage brother were awakened Saturday by their parents arguing at their home in Bucks County, north of Philadelphia, said Mettin and prosecutor Diane E. Gibbons.

"They came out of their respective bedrooms, they saw that their father had a knife to the throat of their mother," Gibbons said.

The boys got two unloaded shotguns from the house and confronted their father, Andrew Detwiler, "told the father to leave, to get out, to leave Mom alone," Mettin said.

However, Detwiler grabbed one of the shotguns, went to the garage to load it and returned to the house, where he fired through a window and hit his wife, Suzanne Detwiler, on a deck outside, they said.

The 15-year-old, who had loaded his shotgun, then shot his father as he was bending over his wife and raising his gun again, the authorities said.

The boy, who ran to a neighbor's house in tears, won't be charged, Gibbons said.

That must really, really suck for those boys. Holy crap, to have your mother killed in front of you, and then gunning down your father. I really feel for them.

They actually didn't mention if the mother survived or not.
