IL:Father shoots son in self defense

Authorities say a father acted in self-defense Monday night when he fired one shot, striking his 26-year-old son in the stomach.

The incident occurred in the 2800 block of South Pasfield Street shortly before 6 p.m.

Sergeant Jim Tapscott of the Sangamon County Sheriff’s Office said the son showed up at his father’s home intoxicated. He went to the back door of the home and reportedly began yelling obscenities and trying to force his way in.
