A night out drinking turned violent when a 26-year-old Fort Worth man and his father got into an argument that escalated into a shooting, police said.
The incident happened shortly before 3 a.m. Saturday in the 10100 block of High Eagle Trail in northwest Fort Worth.
Police said the unnamed father and his son, identified in jail records as William Pilkington, had gone out drinking together at a bar, and when they returned home they got into an argument.
The father told Pilkington to leave the house, and Pilkington physically attacked him, police said.
Then, Pilkington retrieved a gun and fired twice — a warning shot, then a shot that struck his father in the leg, police said.
The father was transported to a local hospital with a non-life threatening injury, while Pilkington was arrested at the scene, police said.
He faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a first-degree felony, according to jail records.
Pilkington kept three guns in his bedroom, according to the police incident report.
