'He would rather have a dead son than a gay son': Former foster mom speaks about shooting

HENDERSON (KSNV News3LV) ó Friends and family are remembering a 14-year-old son who Henderson police say was shot and killed by his own father.

People close to the murder victim say part of the argument leading to the shooting was about the teen's sexual orientation.

Friends of Giovanni Melton remember an energetic teenager bringing smiles to everyone he met.

Coronado High School Senior Bailey Schultz says Melton went to her school.

"Itís just sad. He was young and he had a lot to live for," said Schultz.

3. He trivialised his son and reduced him to nothing more than a sexual object.

It speaks much about the father's own insecurities that he could not see beyond a ridiculously inconsequential sex act, to recognise his son as a human being.
