DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 51-year-old man is accused of shooting his daughter’s boyfriend eight times with a high-powered pellet gun.

Douglas Barbee was arrested Tuesday and remains in the Volusia County Jail on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and marijuana possession.

Volusia County Sheriff’s spokesman Andrew Gant says 37-year-old Lawrence Scandell was shot when he argued with Barbee’s 23-year-old daughter. Scandell was shot in the upper chest and leg. He was taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure because of where the pellets struck him.

Scandell told deputies he’d been arguing with girlfriend Kyle Fank in Barbee’s front yard.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://bit.ly/1UGzBRd ) reports court records show Barbee unsuccessfully asked the court for an injunction against Scandell in 2014.

It’s unclear whether Barbee has a lawyer.
