An argument between a father and son accelerated into a shooting Friday, sending the younger man to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, state police reported.

Troopers said Darryl N. Hodges, 32, became involved in an argument with his father, Normand H. Hodges, 61, shortly before noon. The younger man had gone to his father's home in the

1800 block of Tank Road, Finksburg, to pick up belongings he had left when he moved to Baltimore recently.

Investigators said the elder Mr. Hodges accused his son of taking things that did not belong to him. One shot was fired from a .32-caliber handgun and the bullet lodged in the younger man's right shoulder.

Darryl Hodges, with the aid of his wife, Theresa, walked to their automobile, and she drove him to a gasoline station at Route 140 and Sandymount Road. There he was attended by medics from the Reese fire station before being flown to the hospital in a MedEvac helicopter.

Police said Normand Hodges was arrested and charged with assault with intent to murder, attempted murder, assault with intent to maim, assault, battery and use of a handgun in a crime

of violence.
