Police: Food dispute triggers Tomahawk shooting

TOMAHAWK (WAOW) - A 53-year-old Tomahawk man was shot in the shoulder by his 68-year-old brother-in-law during an argument over food, Tomahawk Police Chief Al Elvins said Friday.

The shooting occurred Thursday about 10 p.m. at the home the men shared, Elvins said.

During an argument that erupted over some spice, the 68-year-old went to his bedroom, retrieved a .22-caliber pistol and shot twice at the victim, Elvins said.

Everybody there had alcohol on board. The son of the 68-year-old was present,” Elvins said.

The wounded man was treated and released at a hospital, the police chief said.

The shooter was arrested on suspicion of second-degree attempted homicide, Elvins said.
