ENCINITAS, Calif. -- Authorities Friday identified a 59-year-old man who was shot to death by his stepfather when he threatened his mother with a knife in Encinitas.

The shooting occurred Monday at a home in the 1200 block of Greenlake Drive, San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Michael Blevins said.

Robert Dean was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead Tuesday, Blevins said.
