Son shoots father, no charges filed for now

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Police say information from a Monday morning shooting at a house in Charleston will be turned over to prosecutors to decide if charges should be filed.

Police said the son took out a gun and shot toward Crowder. He was struck once in the chest.

Police said the son stayed on the scene, called Metro 911, and rendered aid to his father.

Crowder is in stable condition at a Charleston hospital.
