Elton Simpson’s father Dunston is speaking out. He denounced his son’s actions to ABC News: “We are Americans and we believe in America. What my son did reflects very badly on my family.”

Dunston Simpson described himself as a strict father, and said his son was “always a good kid,” but said Elton “made a bad choice.” Father and son had not spoken much recently, “because we had some very serious differences.”

According to his father, Elton Simpson was “on vacation” from his job in a dentist’s office at the time of the shooting, and had been away from the office for a few weeks.

The same ABC News piece quotes Elton Simpson’s lawyer from his 2010 terrorism trial, Kristina Sitton: “He grew up the most normal guy. Just a normal high school guy… Converting to Islam seemed like a good thing for him. He had been going down a bad path and then he found Islam. He never struck me as someone who would do this sort of thing. I’m not a bleeding heart, I’m a Republican. I’ve seen some pretty bad guys and he seemed pretty normal.”
