Connecticut state police spokesperson, Lt. J. Paul Vance confirmed the incident to Associated Press and said that they were currently investigating whether the gun was registered and purchased legally.
Another policeman on the scene, John Hodge, told the AP, "It's something out of a Hollywood script...You certainly don't expect it to happen in your own small hometown where there's very little crime."
No charges have been filed against the father. It is also unclear whether Tyler was in fact trying to burglarize his neighbor's place or merely playing a prank. The father has refused to comment on the matter.
Tyler studied at New Fairfield High School and was a member of Civil Air Patrol. He was described as "an easy-going young man who enjoyed spending time with his family," by friends to the AP reporters.
An autopsy of the young boy will soon be performed.
In the words of a police officer at the scene, "All in all it's a tragedy," as reported by the AP.
