A family reunion that almost ends in murder
When Artavious Malone, 16, of Wellington, Fla., accidentally ran into his estranged father, Archie Malone, on Nov. 9, there were no hugs. Instead, the teenager allegedly fired at least four shots at his father, who ran up the street to flee the bullets. There was immediate tension between the two, which started when Artavious bumped his dad in the shoulder, knocking Archie off-balance. He responded by smacking his son in the face. At that point, Artavious left the liquor store, went to his car and thats when he allegedly started firing the gun at his dad. The suspect told police that he didnt fire the shots and just heard them when he was outside. Nevertheless, he was arrested and charged as an adult for attempted first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a Florida delinquent. He remains at the Palm Beach County Jail, where he was booked last Friday.
