MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Milwaukee father is accused of shooting his teenage daughter with a BB gun as discipline for bad grades.

A criminal complaint filed in Milwaukee County says the 29-year-old father recently forced the 13-year-old girl to bend over in the living room and shot her three times in the backside. The complaint says the girl told investigators that when she headed for her room, her father shot her once more, striking her in the left inner thigh. She says the BB shots caused her to bleed and left marks.

WISN-TV (https://bit.ly/1E6pRLD ) reports the father is free on bond following a court appearance on child abuse charges Monday. He was ordered not to possess any weapons. The girl is now living with her mother.
