July 9, 2014 

A family fight in a small town in North Carolina ended with 84-year-old Lloyd Woodlief dead, his 49-year-old son Lloyd Peyton Woodlief hospitalized with a gunshot wound, and his 11-year-old grandson in custody.

Police in Kittrell say a preliminary investigation suggests the grandfather shot and wounded his son with a 22-caliber pistol before the grandson shot him dead with a 12-gauge shotgun.
