Wedon Darlington is in satisfactory condition after being shot in the stomach by his father Tuesday evening.
Weldon Darlington told OkanoganCounty sheriff’s deputies that he was shot about 6:40 p.m. at the Pateros residence he shared with his father, Derik Darlington.
Derik was arrested on suspicion of first-degree assault in connection with the shooting.
After the shooting, the injured Weldon Darlington walked a few blocks to his grandparents’ residence and called 911. Rogers said the two men, who had been drinking, had gotten into an argument that turned physical when Derik Darlington brought out a gun and fired it at his son.
Derik has been charged with 1st degree assault.
