BATON ROUGE - A man was shot to death by his father Monday night after he tried to attack his step-mother, according to police.

The shooting happened round 9:30 p.m. at the Capital Mobile Home Park near Plank Road and Cannon Street. The Baton Rouge Police Department said Devin King, 27, was shot to death during the confrontation.

Police added that King suffered from "mental health issues" and urged others to seek help.
