YOUNGSTOWN (AP) — Authorities say a 61-year-old man has been arrested in Ohio after fatally shooting the father of his 3-week-old grandson while the father held the child.
The shooting occurred Monday night during a domestic dispute in Youngstown. Twenty-seven-year-old Charles Pargo died at the scene.
Louis Littlejohn, of Liberty Township, is charged with aggravated murder. He has a court hearing Wednesday afternoon.
WKBN-TV reports Youngstown police say the shooting occurred after an argument between the two men over custody of the infant. Police say the dispute appeared to have been resolved when Littlejohn went back into the home and shot Pargo as he held the baby, who wasn’t injured.
Police say Littlejohn then walked outside, dropped a gun and surrendered.
Court records don’t indicate if Littlejohn has an attorney.
