A man in the US has been found guilty of shooting and wounding his son during a row over chicken wings.

The 77 year old from Alabama was convicted of first-degree domestic violence, two years after he attacked his adult son while they were watching the Super Bowl.

The family had sat down to watch the football on TV when an argument erupted over food.

The father ended up shooting his son in the chest. His son survived the injury.

Speaking after the guilty verdict, district attorney Michael Jackson told AL.com: “This must have been some really good chicken.”

The pensioner could face two decades in jail.
