HENRIETTA, N.Y. (AP) - A 21-year-old man has been arrested in the fatal shooting of his father inside a Rochester-area home.

Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies tell the Democrat and Chronicle that Fabian Vazquez shot his 48-year-old father, Dezerick Brooks, around 5:30 p.m. Friday inside Vazquez’s home in the Rochester suburb of Henrietta.

Brooks was found inside the residence with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Vazquez was arraigned on a charge of second-degree murder early Saturday. It’s not clear if he has an attorney who can speak for him.

Vazquez was jailed without bail. He is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
