Report: Father Shoots and Kills His 14-Year-Old Son Because He Didn’t Want A Gay Son

A father of 14-year-old boy named Giovanni Melton shot and killed his child in Henderson, Nevada on Thursday, November 2nd …because the teen was gay. The shooter’s name is Wendell Melton. 

Ugh.

Pink News is reporting that victim’s former foster mother, Sonja Jones, has stated that Wendell was upset that that his son was homosexual.

“He hated the fact that his son was gay,” she shared. “I’m sure that inside of his mind, he would rather have a dead son than a gay son.”




Giovanni’s loved ones remember him as an “energetic” teenager who brought happiness to those he came across, according to News 3, Las Vegas.

A classmate of the victim at Coronado High School, Bailey Schultz, stated,”It’s just sad. He was young and he had a lot to live for.”

Police responded on Thursday afternoon and say that the 53-year-old father shot his son in the apartment where the 14-year-old stayed by himself.

Wow.


His former foster mother also said: “Giovanni was abused physically and mentally and spiritually for many, many years.”

Poor kid. How horrible.


She then added that she had spoken to a family member who confirmed that an argument had ensued over Giovanni’s sexual orientation. She claims that the argument led to the incident, which eventually lead to the horrid incident.

An ex-pilot, Wendell used to work for United Airlines. 



Sonja says he threatened his son before Thursday.

“I’m hearing his dad had caught him with his boyfriend before and pulled out a gun on him. I hope they throw the book at him. I hope he never sees the light of day,” Sonja stated. “I hope every day when he looks in the mirror, he sees his son’s face.”

We hope the same. Our thoughts and prayers to his friends and family.


In other news, the man who allegedly sexually assaulted Terry Crews (in front of his wife, at an industry event, because the brazenness of sickos never ceases to amaze and horrify us) has been identified. Good!

Want to lighten things up a bit? Same.

Let’s all go have a laugh at Diddy. He says that his new name is “Brother Love”. The Internet had QUITE a few opinions on this and most of them gave us a good laugh, so, you know, go take a look or whatever.
