A Carroll District judge set bond yesterday for a 61-year-old Finksburg man charged with shooting his son during a domestic dispute Friday.

Normand H. Hodges of the 1800 block of Tank Road remained in the Carroll County Detention Center last night on $20,000 bond.

He had been held without bond since his arrest Friday afternoon.

State police said Darryl N. Hodges, 32, of Baltimore allegedly became involved in an argument with his father shortly before noon.

The younger man had gone to his father's home to pick up belongings he had left when he moved recently.

Police 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, police said.

Darryl Hodges was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was in good condition yesterday.

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.

Judge JoAnn Ellinghaus-Jones will allow Normand Hodges tpay 10 percent of his bond to gain pretrial release.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled April 5.
