Deputies said, in the surveillance video that they’ve released, the altercation starts with the son, Mario Clark, leaving his father’s house. The father was behind him pointing a weapon at his son. The father then flinches, ducks, and runs from a shot being fired in his direction.
Footage shows the father walking across the frame with a gun in hand toward his son. Footage appears to show the father refraining from firing, just pointing the gun. He then flinches and flees off-screen after his son allegedly opened fire. Then Mario Clark appears in the frame again, now pointing a pistol. The son ducks and runs for cover before appearing to fire again. The father returned fire, “fearing for his life,” according to police.
“Our patrol deputies were able to make contact with the male outside the house and he still had the firearm on him at that time,” Nix said, reported Fox 5 Atlanta.
Police said the father acted in self-defense, so he doesn’t face any charges, reported Fox 5 Atlanta. The son, however, faces a charge of aggravated assault.
