LEXINGTON, KY (AP) - A Kentucky man has been charged with shooting and killing his adult son on Father's Day.

An arrest citation says 45-year-old James Hendron Jr. was charged with murder-domestic violence Sunday in the death of 23-year-old Austin Hendron, Lexington media outlets reported.

Lexington police Lt. Nathaniel Muller said officers were called Sunday evening to an argument in a driveway involving a weapon. They arrived to find the younger man, who was taken to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital. The Fayette County Coroner's Office said Austin Hendron died of multiple gunshot wounds.

It's not clear what prompted the altercation.

Online jail records don't list an attorney for James Hendron.
