Monroe police say they received an emergency 911 call to the residence located at 50 Teil Tree Court, for a possible domestic disturbance about 12:19 AM.
Monroe Police Public Information Officer Joshua King, said in a prepared statement that 46 year old Christopher Bailey was shot and killed by his 19 year old son Colin Bailey from a single fatal gunshot wound.
The official narrative incident report from police say that they were dispatched to the residence “for an intoxicated male threatening suicide. Upon arrival it was discovered a domestic situation occurred between father and son.”
The report also indicated that a urine sample was taken from the 19 year old Colin Bailey, and that a .45 caliber shell casing as well as an LG Android phone was also taken by homicide detectives as evidence.
Officers said that when they found Christopher Bailey, who had been shot, he was immediately transported to Atrium Medical Center in Middletown where he was pronounced dead at 1:09 AM, according to the Warren County Coroner’s Office.
According to police Colin Bailey has not yet been arrested and was released into his own custody at this time pending further investigation, King said.
“When all pertinent information is gathered the completed case file will be reviewed by the Butler County Prosecutor’s Office to decide if any charges are applicable,” he said in the statement.
King also said that the Monroe Police Department will not be publicly releasing any additional details about the shooting or the suspect until the prosecutor’s office has had a chance to review the case and made their determinations on what, if any, charges may be applicable for this crime.
