AVALON PARK, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a central Florida man has been shot and killed by his teenage son in a domestic dispute.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, the shooting happened early Wednesday in Avalon Park.

Deputies say the man was intoxicated and hitting his wife. That's when the 15-year-old allegedly shot his father.

The woman told 911 dispatchers that her husband had come home drunk and hit her, and then her son shot him.

The teen was taken into custody but no charges have been filed.

Four other people were in the home at the time of the shooting, but no other injuries were reported.
