KILN, Miss. (AP) - Authorities in Mississippi say a man has been wounded in a shooting and that his father is charged with aggravated domestic violence.

News outlets report the shooting happened Tuesday afternoon at a home in Kiln and that the man was being treated at a New Orleans hospital.

WLOX-TV quotes Hancock County Sheriff Ricky Adam in a report that says 67-year-old Ronald Ladner was arrested on the charge.

Adam says Ladner’s son had been shot several times with a handgun during an argument and that he did not have a weapon.

Deputies are continuing to investigate. It is unclear if Ladner has a lawyer.
