A man police suspect of killing his father was arrested Friday in Colorado hours after officers discovered his father's body in an Irvine residence.
A report of suspicious circumstances drew Irvine police to a home at 17 Dartmouth in Irvine at 1:30 p.m. Friday, where family members had found a significant amount of blood inside, Irvine Police Department Lt. Dave Klug told City News Service.
The lieutenant said that a search of the house revealed 60-year-old Ernest Joseph Bruno dead in a room from what appeared to be gunshot wounds
The man's son, Steven Joseph Bruno, 21, was identified as a possible suspect by detectives, Klug said.
The man was living with his father; the two had recently argued over money, the lieutenant said.
Investigators told other law enforcement agencies that they believed the 21-year-old had fled the state in his father's vehicle.
At about 5:30 p.m. Friday, Colorado Department of Public Safety officers located the vehicle and suspect in Logan County, Colorado, and took him into custody, Klug said.
The homicide is the second of the year in Irvine. Both have been domestic in nature.
