MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Glendale father is charged with shooting his two sons, killing one and wounding the other at their home last week.

Fifty-seven-year-old Robert Washington told police he was being bullied in his own house.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Washington is charged with first-degree reckless homicide in the death of 20-year-old Robert Curtis Washington II on Thursday. He also is charged with first-degree reckless injury for allegedly wounding 15-year-old Wesley Washington.

According to the complaint, Robert Washington Sr. appeared intoxicated when he got in the way of his sons' basketball game and was knocked over.

The complaint says the father later came out with a handgun and shot the younger son in the thigh and calf. The older son ran toward his father and was shot in the chest.

GLENDALE, Wis. (AP) -- Glendale police have arrested a man suspected of shooting and killing one of his sons and wounding another.

Detective Troy Nitschke says a 20-year-old was killed and a 15-year-old was injured and called police after the shooting Thursday.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ( ) reports the shooting happened inside a house in the northeast Milwaukee suburb.

A police spokesman says when when officers arrived, they found the wounded 15-year-old attending to the 20-year-old victim. Officers pulled the 20-year-old to the driveway of a neighboring home first before administering first-aid because they did not know where the shooter was.

The suspect later surrendered without incident at the house.

The younger brother was taken to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. Officers didn't have an update on his condition Thursday afternoon.
