LEE'S SUMMIT, MO (KCTV) -

A 20-year-old man is recovering at Centerpoint Medical Center in Independence after authorities say he was shot in the stomach by his father.

The victim and his father became involved in an argument about 2 a.m. Friday at a residence in the 1700 block of NE Ridgeview Drive.

A single gunshot was fired during the argument inside the home's garage. The father is in police custody and charges are pending.

The argument occurred as the two were working on a dirt bike.

The victim's girlfriend told KCTV5's Erika Tallan that the injured man was able to get to a garage door and scream for help. The woman found the man lying on the garage door.

After calling 911, the man was rushed via ambulance to the hospital where he underwent surgery to remove part of his intestines.

The home is near Highway 291 and Colbern Road.
