GOLF MANOR, OH (FOX19) -

An 80-year-old father is accused of shooting his son during an alcohol-fueled dispute in Golf Manor overnight.

Ronald Baumgartner was booked into the Hamilton County Justice Center just before 5 a.m. Thursday on charges of felonious assault, domestic violence and using weapons while intoxicated, jail officials said.

According to his arrest report, he was under the influence of alcohol when he shot and seriously injured his son, Reid Baumgartner, 38, just before midnight at their residence in the 6300 block of Hammel Avenue.

Officers responded to a report of a domestic disturbance inside a home about that same time.

When they arrived, they said they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to his chest/torso area.

Reid Baumgartner was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center. 

His condition was not immediately available.

Another man in the home, Ronald Baumgartner, was taken into custody.

He will be held without bond at the county jail until he makes his first court appearance on the charges Friday morning, jail officials said.

Golf Manor police also have filed a motion for a temporary protection order against Ronald Baumgartner, court records show.

They are asking a judge to order him to stay away from his son and other family or household members.
