Grandson Shot, Reportedly by Elderly Grandfather

VALLEY, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say an 80-year-old grandfather fatally shot his grandson after a heated argument.

Valley Police Maj. Mike Reynolds said Monday that William Bailey shot 30-year-old James Bailey after the grandson tried to grab his grandfather's .38-caliber pistol.

Reynolds said the two struggled over the firearm and it discharged, striking the younger man in the chest.

Police say they are still investigating but no charges have been filed yet.
