FORT MYERS, FL –  Police say an 87-year-old man in North Fort Myers shot his stepson in the face for being a "moocher."

The Fort Myers News-Press reports that William Calvin Crow faces attempted murder and weapons charges after shooting at Craig Barton, who survived the June 11 attack. Crow told investigators he was tired of Barton being a "moocher" and was upset over his stepson's heavy drinking.

Police say the two got into an argument and Crow later pulled out a .25 caliber pistol and fired several shots at Barton's face and neck. The two men grappled until Barton disarmed his stepfather.

Both men were treated for injuries at Lee Memorial Hospital. Crow is in the Lee County Jail.

He couldn't just ask him to leave?

He kind of did in his own step-fatherly way.

"fired several shots at Barton's face and neck"

 

I don't think I would be in any shape to disarm anyone after that :laugh:
