Man shot and killed by father-in-law when birthday surprise goes tragically wrong

A birthday surprise went tragically wrong when Christopher Bergan, 37 flew 45000 miles from Florida to Norway to surprise Richard Dennis on his 61st birthday.

Dennis didn’t know of Bergan’s trip and when Bergan banged on Dennis’s back door late in the evening and the jumped out of the bushes to surprise him, Dennis thought he was an intruder and shot him dead.

Norwegian Police called the killing “totally accidental,” and Dennis will not face charges.

Moral of the story: think twice before making surprise birthday calls late at night.
