SHINGLETOWN, Calif. – A Northern California man is facing trial for allegedly shooting his son because he didn’t like his karaoke singing.
William Oller Sr., 70, has been ordered to stand trial for the January shooting his 50-year-old son, William Oller Jr., after getting aggravated at his son’s karaoke signing of a Kenny Chesney song.
Oller Sr. was visiting his son when he became angry over the music and the two got into an argument. Oller Sr. was heard saying, “I’m going to shut you up” multiple times before going out to his vehicle and retrieving a handgun.
His son followed him outside and the two got into a struggle over the firearm, resulting in Oller Jr. being shot multiple times and Oller Sr. suffering a gunshot to the leg. According to officials, Oller Sr. told police that his son hit him first and in response, he “shot the shit out of him.”
Oller Sr. was arrested and charged with attempted murder and assault, both of which he pleaded not guilty to in February.…
William Carr Oller Jr., 50, was apparently belting out a country tune at his home Thursday, when Oller Sr. essentially told him to shut the f*ck up. When the younger Oller failed to do so, the elder Oller reportedly exited the man’s home, declaring, “I’m going to shut you up.”
Police say Oller Sr. then retrieved a .22 caliber from his pickup and pointed it at his son, who had followed him outside to speak with him. With that, Oller Jr. beat feet back into the trailer, locking the door behind him.
Believing his father had left the area, Oller Jr. opened the door and popped his head out. There was dad, on the porch, gun in hand.
Police say that triggered another fight – a fight that reportedly left the younger Oller with gunshot wounds to the head, chest, hand and shoulder.…
