PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -- A man in suburban Detroit has been fatally stabbed after an argument and physical struggle with his son over the teen's gang activity.

The Oakland County sheriff's office says the 40-year-old victim would not allow his son to leave the Pontiac house Friday. The 15-year-old boy is being held at a county detention center for juveniles.

Sheriff Mike Bouchard says the father was a victim of violence while "trying to tear his son away from a potential life of violence and death." He calls it sad and tragic.

    What is wrong with kids now days?Sorry about dad but the punk need to be charge like the adult he thinks he is.

    I agree with Jason, hope he is charged as an adult, the punk hopefully will get his in prison, what goes around comes around. I don't care how old you are, you do the crime then do the time.

    Well the boy wanted to be in a gang environment, he's going to see just how horrific violence can be once he lands in prison.And this is what he wanted so enjoy it.

    They had better charge that little punk as an adult.
