A man shot his son and then turned the gun on himself yesterday when a family row ended in tragedy. The 15-year-old boy was recovering from an operation at St Richard's Hospital, Chichester, last night but his father, Gerald Carter, 50, died outside the family home in Chichester, West Sussex.

Police were called to the scene at lunchtime after neighbours heard gunshots. They found the boy in a pool of blood with gunshot wounds to the stomach. Paramedics rushed him to St Richard's Hospital, Chichester.

The boy's mother, who was not in the house at the time of the incident, was being comforted by relatives last night.
