URBANA, Ill. (AP) - An Urbana man has been charged with murder in the shooting death of his son.

According to The News-Gazette in Champaign (https://bit.ly/1tsUmtw ), 66-year-old David Farrell was charged Monday with three counts of first-degree murder in the Sunday shooting of his son, Matthew Farrell.

David Farrell does not yet have an attorney. He has not entered a plea and remained in jail Monday in lieu of $1 million bond.

Urbana police say they were called to a domestic disturbance at the elder Farrell’s home late Saturday night. Three hours later they returned to investigate a reported shooting and found Matthew Farrell shot and lying in the street outside the house. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Autopsy results are pending.
