Lake City police have a 19 year old man in jail–accused of shooting and killing his own father.

Lake City officers arrested Eric Haenisch Sunday night after they got a call from his mother who said Eric had called her and discussed the killing.  Investigators went to the Haenisch residence at 313 Northwest Lake City Avenue, Apt. 102, where police saw a man sitting motionless on a couch.  They forced their way in and found 55 year old Herman Haenisch dead.

While this was going on Khrissi Haenisch, the wife of Herman and mother of Eric, had called police and said her son had told her he shot and killed his dad.  Khrissi Haenisch said Eric had fled the apartment and was driving a red Dodge Durango.  She was out of town and was not home at the time.

A search turned up the Durango at the Cabot Lodge at 3525 U.S. Highway 90 in Lake City.  Eric Haenisch came out of a room and turned himself in when he heard other rooms in the hotel being evacuated.  He was taken to the Columbia County Jail on a charge of Willful Homicide.

It’s not known what may have led to the shooting incident.  Investigators say anyone having information about the incident can contact the Lake City Police Department TIP line at 386-719-2068
