Son charged after Texas father, 63, fatally shot

HOUSTON — Authorities are trying to determine a motive in a Houston-area shooting that left a 63-year-old man dead and his son charged with murder.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office says Dale Lee Baker died Sunday at a hospital several hours after being shot in the head while at home.

Jail records show 41-year-old Cory Dale Baker was being held Monday on $50,000 bond. Online jail records did not list an attorney for the son, who was arrested shortly after the shooting around 11 a.m. Sunday.

The sheriff's office says the suspect's mother called 911 to say the couple's son had shot his father.
