Associated Press Release

LUTZ, Fla. (AP) -- A 26-year-old Hillsborough County man remains in stable condition in the hospital after attacking his father who shot him in the chest during the fight.

A sheriff's office report says no charges have been filed against Eric Harris or his father, 61-year-old Henry Harris, as the investigation continues.

Deputies who responded to a 911 call of a domestic related shooting in Lutz late Saturday say Eric Harris was drunk and began arguing with his girlfriend.

The argument, deputies say, spilled over into an argument with his father. As the father went to walk his dogs outside, deputies say his son attacked him and placed him in a choke hold. He broke free, but Eric Harris went at him again. Authorities say the father then shot him once in the chest.
