Son Shot for Singing Country Song Doesn’t Want Dad Charged


The northern California man who was shot by his own father over the fact that he was singing a country song on karaoke has come forward to make a shocking statement: He doesn’t want his father to be charged!

William Oller, Jr. (pictured above) was shot multiple times by his father, William Oller, Sr., in a domestic dispute over Jr. singing karaoke to an unnamed country song. The younger Oller told KRCR that he was singing a Kenny Chesney song, but he doesn’t recall which Chesney song it was that got on his dad’s nerves enough to cause him to open fire. When this story was initially reported, it was unclear which artist’s song was at the heart of this case.

Oller, Jr. said his father is a caring man who also advised him on his singing.

“It is totally out of character, and the last thing I want to see is my dad in trouble or prison for something that truly I believe he didn’t know what he was doing at the time,” Oller, Jr., who still has a bullet lodged in his shoulder, said. He also revealed that his father, 70, suffered two strokes recently and that this could have been a catalyst for the shooting.

Oller, Sr. has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder.
