Cop Shoots and Kills His Own Son, Who Wanted to be a Cop

Delray Beach, FL — A Palm Beach Sheriff’s deputy is on paid administrative leave following a domestic incident which ended in the shooting of his own son.

Late Friday night Delray Beach police released the name of the deputy who they say shot and killed his son on Christmas Eve. They say off duty deputy Shatara K. Shatara killed Khamis Shatara, 21, during a domestic dispute early Christmas Eve morning.

Khamis Shatara was reportedly aspiring to be a police officer.

The New Times reports that Khamis Shatara appears to have been a criminal justice major at Palm Beach State College who idolized police.

He was recently quoted in that college’s newspaper, and a Pinterest account matching Khamis’ name and photo contains several memes honoring police officers. Eerily, one of those memes shows a cop firing a gun at point-blank range.

Hilal Shatara tells Gossip Extra the deputy is “devastated” and has undergone psychological counseling.

“My uncle is not a monster,” Hilal Shatara told us. “It was a tragedy. God has our fate written for us from the day we are born.”

Hilal Shatara said his cousin Khamis has had trouble coping with his belief he’d been sexually abused as a child by a distant relative.

“The family had a lot of arguments about this,” Hilal Shatara said. “My cousin was troubled. He had a temper and he was drinking.”

“No one knows what happened in that house except for my uncle and my aunt. Police are keeping everyone in the dark.”

The Delray Beach police department have yet to release any details regarding the shooting other than saying it was a “domestic incident.”

PBSO deputy was detained the night of the shooting but has been released and no charges have been filed.

Who wanted to be a cop. You should have added that he was troubled, had a temper and was drinking. Who knows what happened , details haven't been released yet. It is very clear however, you really hate law enforcement

Why are you defending a man that killed his own son?

Insufficient information, as yet, to fairly judge.

Where did I defend him? I said all details haven't been released. Her title is misleading

Very sad. Family breaks are very stressful. I've been very grateful my family isn't prone to violence to each other because not all holidays are fun.

I don't know if it could be avoided because the entire story had not been released

Maybe the son pulled a gun on his Mother or Father. A struggle for the gun ensued and the son was accidently shot as a result..Since we don't have any of the details let wait to pass judgement...
