HUNTINGTON - The son of Oheka Castle's owner is considered a "person of interest" in his father's shooting earlier this year, according to Newsday.

Thomas Melius, 34, is Gary Melius' adopted son. Gary Melius was shot in the head by a masked gunman in Oheka Castle's parking lot back in February.

Newsday says Gary Melius has acknowledged his son has been interviewed extensively by police but says, "They have not one thing to physically connect him to this. Not one phone call, not anything."

Back in June, detectives released images of the Jeep Grand Cherokee they say was used in the shooting. No arrests have been made yet.
