A 17-year-old boy who was missing by his family has been arrested and charged with the shooting death of his father.
Anthony Templet was described by his & # 39; violent & # 39; father Burt from his home in Houston when he was only five years old.
His family said they last saw him with Burt Templet in 2008.
Anthony is now being held in a youth institution in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, because he allegedly shot his father three times after an argument, according to WAFB.
The teenager told the deputies of the East Baton Rouge sheriff that his father was drunk and started a fight with him.
Anthony said he grabbed two guns in case someone couldn't fire and shot his father three times, delegates said.
Authorities said Anthony then called 911. Burt had gunshot wounds to the head and trunk when he was taken to the hospital.
He died of his injuries a few days later.
Anthony & # 39; s sister, Natasha, told the station that she and their family were waiting to hear if the teenager was still alive.
Anthony told delegates that his father was drunk and started a fight with him. The teenager said he shot his father three times. Anthony & # 39; s sister, Natasha, said they had placed missing persons flyers (like the one above) that Anthony and his father Burt showed after the boy was missing in 2008
& # 39; He has been isolated and abused by his own father all these years. My brave brother had to defend himself against that bad man for the last time. & # 39;
File reports show that between 2001 and 2002, Burt was charged three times with mistreatment. Two of the cases were rejected.
The ex-wife of Burt asked for a protective order, just before the family saw Anthony for the last time.
Natasha told the station: & Burt and my mother had been together for about ten years and it was extremely violent.
& # 39; I can only imagine what Anthony has experienced. When he was a baby, Burt held him in his arms as he abused my mother. & # 39;
The boy's father eventually remarried, but that woman left him earlier this year.
According to Natasha, Anthony has been isolated and abused by his own father for all these years & # 39 ;. The shooting took place at this house on 17652 Gray Moss Avenue in Baton Rouge
She also filed a protection order against his father after allegedly beating some of her teeth.
According to Anthony's sister, they posted missing passenger flyers around Houston when he was taken from them in 2008.
The missing posters contained photos of both Anthony and Burt.
District attorney Hillar Moore told WAFB that his office spoke to several Anthony family members.
Hillar said his office will review the information received from family members before he & # 39; decides what action to take & # 39;
For now, Anthony is being held to the homicide charge.
But it is possible for a grand jury to impose the murder charge or decide that it is self-defense and let him go free.
