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.

Roane Co. Sheriff Jack Stockton said they believe Michael showed up at the home, 1678 Old Harriman Hwy., demanding money. Stockton said he had a history of assaulting his father and had been arrested for Domestic Assault against Victor in the past.

The Sheriff's Office planned on turning the investigation over to the District Attorney's office.
