Judge denies 'stand your ground' motion in retired OPD officer's shooting of son [View all]

At a tear-filled hearing on Friday, former Orlando police officer Timothy Davis Sr. tried to convince a judge that he had no choice but to fire the shots that killed his 22-year-old son.

Davis Sr. said he was beaten. Nearly crippled. In fear for his life.

But after watching video of the retired lieutenant retrieving a gun, pointing it toward his son and firing, Circuit Judge Jenifer Davis ruled the defense had failed to show the shooting was justified under Florida's controversial "stand your ground" law.

The judge's ruling means the case will likely proceed to trial. It's set for Nov. 26.
