ELKHART -- A 38-year old man was arrested Friday morning after allegedly shooting at his 19-year old son.

Steven R. Walker, of 2600 Southdale Drive, was arrested on preliminary charges of battery, pointing a firearm and criminal recklessness. He was arrested shortly after 10:20 a.m. when Elkhart Police responded to a report of shots fired. A 19-year old man reported that he had gotten into an argument with his father, which escalated into a physical altercation. During the altercation, Walker allegedly retrieved a weapon and fired at least two shots at his son, Lt. Ed Windbigler said in a press release.

Police interviewed several witnesses before arresting Walker. Detectives also planned to request a search warrant from the Elkhart County Prosecutor's Office that would allow them to search the home to collect evidence related to the incident, Windbigler said.
