PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police say a 15-year-old boy stabbed his father to death during a domestic dispute.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson says the mother, her teenage son and a 7-year-old child were at a home Friday night when the man arrived drunk. Police identified the man as 36-year-old Antonio Raizola.

Thompson says Raizola allegedly got into a physical fight with the woman and the teen. The fight spilled out to the front yard and, at some point, Raizola grabbed a knife and started waving it.

The son took the knife from his father and stabbed him.

Phoenix television station KSAZ reports (http://bit.ly/12tmSf1) that the man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The mother and son told police the stabbing was in self-defense. The son was questioned and released.
