“Alexander Deltoro Jr. was arrested Sunday on charges of manslaughter and illegally carrying a concealed firearm, police said.

“Deltoro had gone out with his family on his 28th birthday on Saturday, and he was wrapping up the evening by heading home with them in a car, police said. While riding home, Deltoro and his father, Alexander Deltoro Sr., got into a verbal argument.

“When they arrived home, it got worse with Deltoro and his father shoving each other,” the report added,

“Police say Deltoro tried to grab his Glock handgun inside his right waistband during the argument, when Deltoro’s mom stepped in to separate her husband and son. Then Deltoro fired a single shot from his gun — a shot meant for his father — hitting his mother in the face, police said.

“The allegations in this case are — there’s no word for it,” said Judge Jackie Powell, who set his bail at $101,000 Monday morning.”
