COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Police say an Ohio man shot and wounded his own son after mistaking him for an intruder.

Officers responded to a Columbus home Tuesday morning for an unknown complaint.

When they arrived they say 51-year-old Biyaga Ceesay told them that a stranger had shot his son. Later, the man said he accidentally shot his son because he thought he was an intruder trying to rob the family.

The boy is hospitalized in stable condition and is expected to recover.

Ceesay has been charged with domestic violence, assault and child endangerment.
