Father, 82, killed son during Christmas Day dispute: deputies

An elderly Florida man fatally shot his son during an argument on Christmas Day, sheriff officials said.

Deputies from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office were conducting a homicide investigation after responding to a home late Tuesday at 2727 Forbes Road in Plant City, department spokesman Danny Alvarez said in a news release.

A person who called 911 from inside the residence at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday reported that Guy Richard Vickery, 82, shot his son, Benjamin Vickery, 50, in the upper body during an argument between the men.

Benjamin Vickery was then rushed to South Florida Baptist Hospital, where he later died from his injuries, Alvarez said.

Details of the dispute were unclear and an investigation is ongoing, a dispatcher told The Post early Wednesday.

Vickery remains held without bail on one count of manslaughter with a weapon at the Hillsborough County Jail, records show. It’s unclear if he’s hired an attorney.
