William Oller - Jailed After Shooting Son Over Karaoke Song

Shingletown, California (The Weekly Vice) - William Henry Oller Sr., a 70-year-old Sacramento area man was jailed after he allegedly shot his son because he didn't like his karaoke singing.

According to the Shasta County Sheriff's Office, Oller was visiting his 50-year-old son at his residence in Shingletown when he reportedly became angry over his son's karaoke singing. The two got into an argument, and Oller left the residence, stating "I'm going to shut you up".

Investigators say Oller went to his truck and retrieved a semi-automatic pistol. He then went back to the residence and pointed the gun at his son, who had followed him outside while attempting to talk to him.

Oller shot his son in the arm, then shot himself as he and his son struggled for control of the weapon. Oller's defense attorney stated that the shooting was self defense, since his son was approaching an armed man at the time.

Oller was booked into jail and charged with attempted murder and assault. His bond was set at $75,000.
