DA: Father Accidentally Killed Son

Authorities believe the father of the Sheridan Fire Chief who died after being shot accidentally killed his son.

33-year-old Jeffrey Roberts died of a gunshot wound he received while hunting in the town of Stockton on December 3.

During a news conference this morning Chautauqua County Sheriff Joe Gerace and District Attorney David Foley said the shot was fired from a Winchester 7mm rifle that Roberts' 72-year-old father was carrying at the time. Gerace says Roberts was bent over dressing a deer and had removed his orange hunting apparel.

William Roberts, who is suffering from a terminal illness, says he has no memory of the incident. Foley says no charges will be filed.
