A father, who is accused of fatally shooting his 22-year-old son, confessed to the killing on Ring doorbell footage moments later.

David De Jesus Contreras, 52, shot his son Eric Contreras in the head in Pinecrest, Miami-Dade County in November last year. 

Details of What he Said

In the aftermath of the shocking violence, Contreras spoke to his wife outside the property trough the doorbell before being arrested.

‘Is he alive? Is he breathing?’ asked his wife.

‘He’s not breathing. He’s dead. The fighting on the way home was unbearable, we got here and it was one second to the next,’ Contreras said through tears. 

What Was Their Argument?

The father and son argued about Eric’s social plans, before the father shot his son.

Minutes later, police arrive at the property and officer’s bodycam footage captured a second confession.

‘I just shot my son,’ Contreras wails as armed police make their way over to him in the driveway.

‘Walk right in, he’s there, 10 feet in,’ Contreras tells officers as he kneels on the ground.
