Fannin County shooting a family affair

By  | 

LADONIA - Fannin County sheriff's deputies are investigating an alleged shooting between a mother and her son.

It happened yesterday around four o'clock in Ladonia. Fannin County Sheriff Kenneth Moore says when deputies arrived at the scene they found 40-year-old John Askew shot in the arm.

The gun used to shoot him was found at his 75-year-old mother's home.

Askew was flown to Parkland Hospital in Dallas. No word tonight on his condition. The case is still under investigation.

Last Friday, Askew was taken to jail on charges of public intoxication and for assaulting his mother in front of deputies.
