    A retired Orlando police officer was arrested after shooting and killing his 21-year-old son Saturday evening, police said.

    Tim Davis, Sr., 47, pulled out a gun and shot his son, Tim Davis, Jr., during an argument at a home on King's Eagle Lane in the Pines of Wekiva subdivision Saturday evening, Apopka police spokesman Capt. Jerome Miller said.

    He has been charged with first-degree murder and was being held at the Orange County Jail late Sunday.

    According to an arrest affidavit, Davis, Sr., said his son punched and pushed him, bloodying his mouth. Police said he told them that he went to his car, got the gun and shot his son twice.

    "I was in a funk," Davis Sr. said, according to the document. "I went and got my gun and I shot him."

    Police said the men were arguing about the custody of Davis Jr.'s child.

    .Davis Sr.'s 9-year-old daughter said she saw her grandfather get the weapon and was there when her brother was shot.

    Davis Jr. was a former standout football player at Apopka High School and played for the University of Alabama-Birmingham in college.

    Davis Sr. was charged with first-degree murder with a firearm.

    Neighbors said the incident was out-of-character for the way they remember the family. They said family members are well-known in the Apopka area for community service and involvement in football.

    I've been mad at my daughter before......but how could you possibly kill your own son? Cop was retired OPD, and surely has seen the worst of things.....this just makes no sense, and is really sad.

    A person willing to do this because of an argument and a scuffle with his SON? Jesus, I would have hated to have run into this guy while he was on duty.

    I hate to say it, but I live close and OPD has a really bad reputation for excessive force. I'm sure they have plenty of good men and women, but the perception is definitely skewed the other way. A sad, senseless act though- any way you look at it.
    I think I should be able to claim my guns as dependents on my taxes. I have to clothe them, feed them, clean them when they get dirty, keep them safe from bad people...

    "I was in a funk."

    I don't believe I have heard that particular excuse for murder before.

    I have a friend who's last name happens to be 'Funk', I don't think he'd appreciate the reference lol.

    Anger coupled by a bit of anxiety perhaps? Drink or some other thing involved?

    Who knows. Still, it would be extraordinarily difficult for me to shoot my kid. He'd have to be nearly killing me in order for that to happen.

    Sad on all sides.

    Tragic...just unthinkable.
    I don't think I could kill one of my kids, for anything. I believe I would let them kill me before I would kill them.
    I'd rather be on the recieving end of that one, I'm not sure I could stand myself otherwise.

    Not sure what this story has to do with CCW. Do we just post any story where a gun is involved?

    In the news encounters with the bad guys, with both successful, and not so successful, outcomes. Armed citizens have a fighting chance against criminals; those without are at their mercy.
