Son shoots at his father over wrong order of chicken wings: report

A Utah man was arrested for firing a gun at his father after he came home with the wrong order of chicken wings, according to officials.

Alika Unga Suliafu, 31, started an argument with his father when he returned to their Davis County apartment with a batch of wings that he did not like in October, according to court documents obtained by Fox 13

The father-son argument escalated until at one point, investigators say Suliafu retrieved a gun from another room and pointed it directly at his father, who begged him not to shoot. 

Just as Suliafu fired, his father ducked, sending the bullet flying through a wall and into a neighbor’s apartment where it lodged in a dishwashing machine.

After the first shot, Suliafu’s father lunged at his son and tried to wrestle the gun away from him, investigators said. As they struggled, Suliafu fired two more shots into the ceiling, which lodged in the sub-floor of the apartment above them. 

The father was able to force the gun’s magazine out as they continued to fight before police arrived on scene, where they found the father with injuries matching his description of events.

Suliafu is being held without bail on charges of  attempted murder and criminal discharge of a firearm.
