FL: Woman says her Son killed man in Self Defense

A North Fort Myers woman says her son shot and killed her tenant and longtime friend in an act of self-defense Thursday night.

Lee County Sheriff's deputies are still investigating the incident and have only confirmed that Jerry Helton, 56, was the victim of a homicide.

Diane Cornelison said her son shot Helton, who was his neighbor, when Helton attacked him with gloves and a serrated knife in his Payne Lane home just before 8 p.m.

"My son was attacked by Jerry," she said. "From what I understand, it escalated into him grabbing his gun that he had by the door and he shot Jerry."
