Teen and father shot by drunk man with pellet gun

A teen boy was riding an ATV in Raymond, Mississippi when a drunk man, 61-year-old Hunter Yarborough, threatened to shoot him.  When the boy got his father, Yarborough shot them both with what turned out to be a pellet gun.  Yarborough had also been aiming his gun at passing vehicles.

From the article and news footage:
A Raymond man in jail after he allegedly shoots a father and son. Hinds County Sheriff's Deputies were called out to 1436 Ranger Road in Raymond around 2:00 Saturday afternoon. They were responding to a report that a man was aiming a gun at cars passing by.
Authorities say a teenage boy was riding an ATV in an open field, then 61-year-old Hunter Yarborough threatened the teen, telling him to get off of his property.
The boy got his father, and authorities say that's when a highly intoxicated Yarborough started aiming his gun at passing cars.
When the boy's father arrived, the two got into an altercation, and authorities say Yarborough shot both the father and son with a pellet gun.
Both victims were taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
