A Lebanon father and son were charged in a shooting Christmas Day that left another Lebanon man injured.

The domestic incident happened at about noon at a home in the 3200 block of Cairo Bend Road near Lebanon. Wilson County sheriff’s detectives said an unidentified victim was shot in the hand and taken to a local hospital for treatment. The victim’s condition was unavailable.

Deputies arrested the two suspects, Christopher Matthew Jones, 28, and William Frank Jones, 55, on Coles Ferry Pike at the intersection with South Hartmann Drive after the suspects’ vehicle passed a deputy. Two deputies caught up with the suspects’ vehicle, stopped it and arrested the father and son without incident.

The Joneses were booked in just before 2 p.m. at the Wilson County Jail. William Jones was charged with public drunkenness and released Monday at about 9:40 p.m. Christopher Jones was charged with three counts of aggravated assault and remained in jail Tuesday on $80,000 bond.

Detectives remained on the shooting scene for several hours Monday afternoon and returned Tuesday morning to process evidence and interview witnesses.
