COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Police say they have arrested a Colorado Springs man for his father's murder.

Authorities received a call around 7:20 on the night of Nov. 13 for a shooting at the Summit Creek Apartments. The complex is just east of South Academy Boulevard off Chelton Road on the southeast side of the city. They found a single victim dying from a gunshot wound.

"Medical did respond and provide medical care to that individual, but unfortunately, he did pass on scene," said Lt. Jim Sokolik with the Colorado Springs Police Department.

The man was identified Monday as 43-year-old Edwin Morales. Police say Morales' 21-year-old son, also named Edwin, is the person who shot him.
