(Gainesville) – Authorities have charged a man for the shooting death of his son after an argument in their Ozark Co. home.

66-year-old Howard Ingram was charged with Second Degree Murder, Armed Criminal Action and two counts of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm on Thursday. He was held without bond.

The shooting happened around 10 PM Wednesday night near Dugginsville, where authorities say Ingram shot his son, 41-year-old Howard Ingram, Jr., in the head with a rifle. Ingram Sr. reportedly told authorities that Howard Jr. had been hitting and slapping him around, and he fired the rifle to scare his son.

Howard Jr. died in a Springfield hospital just after 1:30 PM Thursday afternoon.
