The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the fatal shooting of a Crestview area man by his son, who told deputies he was protecting his mother from domestic violence at the time.
42-year old Lance Weindel died Sunday evening after being shot at his home on Lake Silver Road.
His 21-year old son, Cristian, says it happened after his father, who is 6’3” and 240 pounds, attacked and began choking his mother following an argument over sweet tea.
His mother and other witnesses confirmed the son’s account.
Additional details will be released at the appropriate time.
