Deputies were called to 9635 Butler Road in Mashulaville around 11:30 this morning.

They found Smith’s son, Antonio Metheny, suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower part of the body.

According to Noxubee Co. Sheriff Terry M. Grassaree, it started as a dispute between the father and his mentally challenged son.

“They got into it, it was a verbal altercation first. The son supposedly grabbed the weapon and then the dad grabbed the weapon but the dad had a gun, to my knowledge, the son had a knife,” said Sheriff Grassaree.

Metheny, who is in his mid 30’s, is being treated for his injuries but remains in stable condition.
