CO: Father-son fight spawns gunfire: "A family fight in Colorado Springs erupted in gunfire Tuesday night when a man shot at his son in what he said was self-defense, police said. Angry at his father, 29-year-old John Ziegler III grabbed a gun inside the home he shares with his parents and fired a single round into the dining room ceiling. His father then ran outside to his vehicle and got a second weapon, police said. As Ziegler III emerged from the front door, the father, believing his son intended to shoot him, fired a round at his son, missing. Ziegler III [son] was booked into El Paso County jail on a $2,000 bond, on suspicion of felony menacing and two misdemeanors related to the attack.
