MARRIOTTSVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — A father allegedly shot and killed his 38-year-old son late Tuesday in Marriottsville.
Howard County Police said Stephen Michael Tucker of Randallstown was found dead inside a home in the 1500 block of Marriottsville Road around 8:16 p.m. after officers were called to a report of a man shot.
When they arrived, they found the 38-year-old man dead and his 68-year-old father Stephen Dwight Tucker with injuries.
