Roane County authorities have determined a shooting in Oliver Springs was self-defense.

According to a report from the Roane County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a domestic disturbance call on Old Harriman Highway on Sunday afternoon.

District Attorney General Russell Johnson says Vince Brown was defending himself when he shot and killed his 36-year-old son Michael.

Officials say Michael drove a car through the garage door. His brother confronted him in the garage, but Michael went upstairs to confront his father. That's when Vince shot his son.

Johnson says no charges will be placed against Vince.
