The sister of a New Fairfield man who fatally shot his teenage son last week frantically called police to report someone was shot after she called her brother for help with someone trying to break into her house.
Police say Jeffrey Giuliano went outside with a gun at about 1 am last Thursday and saw a person wearing a ski mask holding a shiny object come toward him in a threatening manner. He was told later the person he killed was his 15-year-old son, Tyler.
Giuliano's sister, speaking rapidly and trying to catch her breath, says she wasn't sure if her brother was shot. She said she didn't know if it was her brother that was shot or did the shooting. When asked by the police dispatcher if her brother had a gun, she said she thought so.
Giuliano's sister told the 911 operator that she opened the front door and her brother screamed at her to stay inside. Police told her to do exactly that and to keep the door locked. The man on the other end of the phone says that officers would come to the house when it's safe.
Giuliano's wife also called police. The 911 calls were released Friday.
