MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — A Mandan father accused of shooting his adult son is charged with reckless endangerment.

Authorities say 57-year-old Kelly Jay Smith told investigators he got in an argument with his 29-year-old son, Kelsey Smith, last weekend, went to bed and then heard someone breaking into his shop.

The Bismarck Tribune reports officials say Smith shot his son in the leg when he found him outside the house after warning him not to approach him. The younger Smith was taken to a hospital. His condition was not released.

Bond has been set at $5,000 for the father. Court records do not list a defense attorney.
