A U.S. Army soldier stationed at Fort Bliss was shot and killed by his 13-year-old stepson, according to Fox News.

The U.S. Ary soldier was apparently having an argument with his wife.

The 13-year-old told investigators he shot his stepfather, Sgt. 1st Class Allan Edwards, 31, with Edwards’ handgun.

The boy claims that he witnessed his stepfather assault his mother hours earlier.

Edwards was found dead inside the apartment from multiple gunshot wounds.
