MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Glendale father is charged with shooting his two sons, killing one and wounding the other at their home last week.

Fifty-seven-year-old Robert Washington told police he was being bullied in his own house.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1lNDpD2) reports Washington is charged with first-degree reckless homicide in the death of 20-year-old Robert Curtis Washington II on Thursday. He also is charged with first-degree reckless injury for allegedly wounding 15-year-old Wesley Washington.

According to the complaint, Robert Washington Sr. appeared intoxicated when he got in the way of his sons’ basketball game and was knocked over.

The complaint says the father later came out with a handgun and shot the younger son in the thigh and calf. The older son ran toward his father and was shot in the chest.
