This time, a story out of Sedalia goes to show the importance of showing some restraint, even in the heightened state of a believed home invasion.
Frank Leo Huner Jr. has become a man in a world he never thought possible after shooting and killing his son on July 1 in a horrific case of mistaken identity.
Frank Leo Huner Jr. was at home on the night of the 1st when he suddenly heard what he thought was someone breaking into his home. At that point, Huner Jr. grabbed his firearm and was ready to defend himself from whatever was on the other side of his door. Unfortunately for the Huner family, it was his son, Nicholas Huner.
As the 33-year-old Nicholas entered the home he was shot by his father, Frank. At that point, Frank immediately made a phone call to local police to report that there had been a shooting at his home. Only later did he admit to police that it was his son who was the victim.
Now after an investigation by local authorities, Frank has been charged with second-degree murder. At this point, the police are reporting that even with this charge it does not mean that they doubt the account of the story that Frank gave to police, but until further investigation can be made into the case, the charge is stuck on Frank Leo Huner Jr.
Shortly after he was taken to jail, Frank was released on a $50,000 bond. At this point in the story, there has been nobody able to reach Frank for comment and it is not known how far into the litigation process the case is, but as updates occur Concealed Carry Inc. will be sure to keep you updated to the best of our abilities.
