A 24-year-old Stafford County man has been charged with murder in the shooting death of his grandfather Sunday morning, according to the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office.

Brandon Cohen called 911 about 8:25 a.m. from a home in North Stafford's Clearview Mobile Home Park, and told dispatchers he had shot and killed his grandfather, said Amanda Vicinanzo, a SCSO spokesperson.

Deputies found Thomas Edward Ennis Jr., 78, unresponsive and "suffering from multiple gunshot wounds," the release said.

Rescue personnel attempted life-saving measures, but the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Stafford detectives have arrested Cohen in connection with the homicide.

Cohen has been charged with one count of first-degree murder and one count of use of a firearm in commission of a felony, the release said. 

Cohen is being held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.

This culture of violence needs to end, it's obvious their genetic makeup is not suitable for civil society...... Always killing family members, or attacking innocent children in schools.
