MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Prosecutors said a Glendale man was apparently drunk when he shot and killed one of his sons and wounded another -- and he claimed he was bullied by his kids and his estranged wife.

That's according to a criminal complaint filed Monday against 57-year-old Robert Washington of Glendale. He's charged in Milwaukee County with reckless homicide for the shooting death of Robert Washington II, and reckless injury for the wounding of 15-year-old Wesley Washington.

The shootings occurred last Thursday at the family's home.

According to prosecutors, the elder Washington was drinking vodka while he watched his younger son play baseball. Later, Wesley knocked over his father while playing basketball, and the father was quoted as saying "You do that again, you ain't gonna wake up."

Both were shot a little while later.

Glendale Police quoted the defendant as saying his younger son tried bullying him "all the time." His wife Annette filed for divorce last fall.
