A Little Rock man shot and injured his son after an argument woke him up early Wednesday, police said.

Officers were called about 3:30 a.m. to a home in the 6100 block of Fourche Dam Pike, where 64-year-old Travis Rex Ramsey said he shot his son in the hand and was taken into custody.

Ramsey's son, 27-year-old Steven Ramsey, told police he was arguing with his mother, which woke up his father. Steven Ramsey said the fight started when his mother was upset that he wouldn't share alcohol with her.

His mother told police that the 64-year-old told Steven Ramsey to "stop that and go back to bed or he would shoot him," according to the police report.

The father fired one shot that missed his son, but a second ricocheted off an air conditioner and struck him in the hand, police said.

The 27-year-old refused attempts to take him to a hospital and became hostile toward officers, the report states.

Travis Rex Ramsey is charged with first-degree domestic battery and second-degree terroristic threatening. As of Wednesday morning, he was being held at the Pulaski County jail with bail not yet set, records show.
