TOWSON: Police say a 19-year-old Maryland man is charged with fatally shooting his father at their home.

Baltimore County police spokesman Cpl. Shawn Vinson said by telephone Monday that officers were called to the home Sunday night after a 911 caller reported that the son shot his father.

When officers arrived, police say they found 46-year-old Devin Vallade suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper body and he died at the scene. Vinson says Vallade's son was taken into custody.

Online court records show that 19-year-old Devin Vallade II has been charged with first- and second-degree murder. He's being held without bond.

Vinson didn't know what led up to the shooting. He says two other family members who were at the home in Towson when the shooting occurred were not injured.
