CLAYTON TOWNSHIP — Flint-area police say they believe a man shot and killed his 15-year-old son.

Clayton Township police Chief Scott Pavlik says the shooting happened about 1:15 p.m. Sunday in the Genesee County community, which is about 10 miles west of Flint.

Police say the boy was shot once with a .40- or 45-caliber weapon that was recovered at the scene.
