Police had been called the home in Coach Side Lane in the upscale suburb several times in the past for reported domestic incidents, Monroe County Sheriff's Office told the Democrat & Chronicle.

Audio recordings of emergency calls, obtained by the newspaper, indicate that Charles - who is a member of Cornell's Sprint Football team - initially said he was defending himself from his father.

Speaking from the scene on Monday night, Chief Deputy Drew Forsythe said deputies had first been called to the scene after neighbors heard shouting coming from within the property.

'While en route to the call, there was additional information there was a shooting at the residence. Upon arrival, the deputies found both the male and female in the driveway,' Chf Forsythe said.

'They were then taken down to our headquarters to be interviewed. We believe they are both occupants of the residence. We don't know the circumstances surrounding [the shooting] yet.'   

Mr Tan - also president of Dynamax Imaging - previously worked at Eastman Kodak Co. for 20 years. The company he was working at when he died specializes in manufacturing image sensors.

In 2013, Dynamax announced that it was moving to its current location, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in Campus Drive, Canandaigua, in its bid to expand.

Charles is scheduled to appear in court on Friday. Police are investigating.

You'd b surprised that everything was already designed in this land, even the wicked serve a purpose for the day of reckoning that is soon to come. its is not up to us to take matters into our own hand and kill nobody, im sorry. If you are wise you would seek help if you're being abused, You must know that you have choices and running away or bringin light to the problem may just solve it, if you tried.

Yeah, thou shall not kill.

I don't care what made the person commit murder, Murder should not be the answer for any human problems. We all have the right to live, until God himself takes us out. Thou shalt not Kill. whatever is on the mans mind, it controls the man. smh. All the commandments God made for us to follow are not being followed. I mean, who here likes that humans are killing each other , a lot of us aint with it, and if God wasn't good he would have said Thou shalt kill everything that aint good and that is good, but he doesn't he said "Thou shalt NOT kill". So that leaves the Devil who says different to the human he want you to kill kill kill so when your life is over you go straight to fire in the pits of hell.

That's absolutely right, we can't imagine what would make a person do such a horrendous thing unless we are in their shoes! That's why we can't pass judgment of the person. All I can say is that it is a tragedy.

I'll withhold judgment on this one... The article states "police were called to the home....several times in the past for domestic incidents." It may be that the dad used to beat up on the mom and the son got tired of it, and maybe the dad tried to beat her again that day and the son killed him. Pure speculation on my part and we need to wait for more details on this. Not that he should have killed the father either way, but more details will tell the WHOLE story and put things in perspective.

Again, the result of adopting and assimilating with foreign cultures. I guess "they" will eventually label this as Asian on Asian violence.....smh, smh.  

Get it straight; IT'S NOT THE PEOPLE, IT'S THE MANIFESTATION OF THE STRESS INVOLVED IN LIVING IN A FUKKED UP SYSTEM WITH IT'S UNREALISTIC FUKKED UP STANDARDS.

The same gun that was supposed to protect the home, was used to kill the home owner. I wonder why he killed his father...maybe he got his allowance cut...whatever the reason...the devil is busy.

Comment by Bombahdrop on February 11, 2015 at 9:32am
The Devil is busy assigning his demons on humans to cause them to sin and stupid humans give into temptation, happens every time. Honor thy mother and thy father and your days will be longer, Thou shall not kill.

SMH.....can't even imagine what would make a person want to kill their own parent.
