Crimetracker: Sheriff: Oliver Springs dad shoots and kills son

OLIVER SPRINGS, Tenn. (WVLT) -- An Oliver Springs man apparently shot and killed his 36 year-old son, according to the Roane Co. Sheriff's Office.

Michael Brown was found dead at a home on Old Harriman Hwy. late Sunday afternoon. Authorities believe he was shot by his father, Vincent Brown.
