A 61-year-old man was so shocked when his son-in-law jumped out from behind some bushes for a birthday surprise that he shot and killed him in Florida.

The Sheriff said later in the press conference that Dennis was "totally startled" when his son-in-law jumped out and allegedly made a "growling" noise upon revealing himself.

Sheriff Bob Johnson of the Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office issued a statement about the incident, saying that prior to Bergan's surprise, Dennis had been startled by a neighbour banging on his front door. "Anybody who's religious out there, you need to pray for this family because this was - I can't imagine what they're going through".

Earlier that evening, Mr Dennis had an argument with another relative because that person had come by the home and loudly banged on his front door. He fired a shot, striking Bergan in the heart and killing him instantly, Johnson said. When Bergan later pounded on Dennis's door in the same manner, the 61-year-old allegedly believed his angry relative had returned.

Later that night, at about 11:30 p.m., Bergan landed after flying in from Norway.
