James Comstock told a local Iowa newspaper that he called the cops on his teen son, Tyler, to teach him a lesson about taking his truck without permission. However, the lesson ends with the cops fatally shooting the teen.

The police identified the missing truck being driven by Tyler and pursued it onto the Iowa State University Campus. After a standoff, the teen allegedly refused to turn of the engine. An officer shot six times at the truck and two shots hit the teen. Comstock says his son was unarmed at the time of the shooting. Although the teen had a minor record, Comstock said that his son was trying to turn his life around.
