DETROIT (AP) — A Detroit father is accused of killing a young man who allegedly shot his 15-year-old son in the face while trying to rob the boy during the sale of a video game in Detroit.

Capt. Russell Solano says a preliminary investigation found the boy had arranged to meet Thursday evening with the young man at the boy's home on Detroit's southwest side.

Solano says the boy's father, who saw what happened from a window, rushed outside. Detroit police spokeswoman Officer Holly Lance tells The Detroit News the father shot the young man.

Solano says the 15-year-old was in serious condition, but was "going to be fine.

Lance says the 36-year-old father was taken into custody. The case is expected to be reviewed by prosecutors to determine whether charges will be brought.
