Country Karaoke Shooting- Kenny Chesney Song To Blame

Daily Mail

I think we’ve all been embarrassed or annoyed at someone performing a bad karaoke song, but this story takes things a little too far.  William Oller, Jr. was shot by a semi-automatic pistol after singing Country Karaoke.

Now the shocking part of the story: Jr.(50) was allegedly shot by his father, William Oller, Sr.(70).  According to, here’s what happened: The younger Oller told the authorities that he and his father battled over his country karaoke music when the elder Oller visited his home. Oller, Sr. apparently told his son, “I’m going to shut you up” before leaving to grab a semi-automatic weapon from his truck, which he then pointed at his son, who had come outside to discuss things.

The son re-entered his home and locked the door. When he believed he was safe and that his father was no longer on his front porch, he opened the door, only to be confronted once again by his pistol-packing pop. A fight ensued, and the younger Oller was shot several times, with wounds to his arm, shoulder and chest. He also suffered a head injury, while his father was shot in the leg during the tussle.

Although, the report did not indicate which particular country song caused the domestic disturbance, and detectives on the case have said that they don’t know, either, has learned that it was a Kenny Chesney selection.  The shocking karaoke disaster took place in the Sacramento area, in Northern California.

According to, Oller Sr.’s appointed deputy public defender entered a plea of not guilty on his behalf, and the scheduled preliminary hearing is Feb. 14. The shooter’s bail was raised from $500,000 to $750,000. He remains in Shasta County jail.
