Long Lane Man Shoots Son

A Long Lane man is accused of shooting his son in the head early Saturday morning in Dallas County.

Dallas County Sheriff Scott Rice said it happened at around 1 a.m. on Cedar Ridge Road in the Long Lane area. Rice said in a Facebook post that an argument turned violent when Bryan Jones shot his son in the top of the head with a 12-gauge-shotgun. Rice said the unnamed victim drove himself to Mercy Hospital in Lebanon and was later flown to Mercy in Springfield.

Jones is charged with 2nd-degree assault and armed criminal action. He is being held without bond.
