A Florida man shot and killed his adult son while cleaning a gun at home on Saturday, September 31, authorities say.
John Jordan was cleaning his .45-caliber handgun at their Port Charlotte home after returning from a local gun range in Punta Gorda when the firearm discharged and struck 22-year-old Joshua Alan Jordan. Family members performed CPR on Joshua until emergency responders arrived and took him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
John, who describes himself as a husband, father, teacher, musician, technician, and biker on his Facebook page, has not been charged in the death of his son. Detectives say the shooting was an accident.
