FORSYTH, Mont. -

A Forsyth man is arrested and charged after shooting his son-in-law earlier this week.

Rosebud County Sheriff Allen Fulton tells KULR-8 that 74-year-old Floyd McIntos is charged with assault with a weapon.

McIntos allegedly shot his son-in-law in the calf Wednesday night.

Investigators say the victim and the suspect's daughter had been arguing.

McIntos is being held on $50,000 bond.

The victim is recovering at home.

A Forsyth man is being hospitalized in Billings after being shot in the calf by his father-in-law during a domestic dispute with his wife, according to the Rosebud County Sheriffs office.

Sheriff Allen Fulton said they received a call at 6:18 pm on Wednesday evening of shots fired at a home just south of Forsyth. 

Fulton said there had been an on-going argument with a 56-year-old man and his 53-year-old wife. 

The 56-year-old man had a gun during the argument prompting his father-in-law, a 74-year-old man, to also draw his gun according to Fulton.

Fulton said the 74-year-old man intervened in the dispute and shot the 56-year-old in the calf. 

The younger man drove himself to the hospital where he was transferred to a Billings hospital with non-life threatening injuries said Fulton.

Fulton said no charges have been filed yet but the incident is still under investigation. 

The names of those involved have not been released.

This story will be updated once an investigation is completed.
