An attorney says a popular teacher who fatally shot a knife-wielding prowler in a ski mask and then learned it was his 15-year-old son says he's devastated and filled with questions about what the boy was doing.

Jeffrey Giuliano's lawyer tells The Associated Press on Monday that the family is "broken in half" by the tragedy. He says he doesn't expect Giuliano to face criminal charges.

Tyler Giuliano died outside his next-door neighbour's house in New Fairfield. His father went outside with a gun Thursday when his sister called to say someone was trying to break into her house.

Jeffrey Giuliano saw a masked person holding a weapon. Police say the person came toward Giuliano and Giuliano shot him, only to be told later that it was his son.
