Bond for a Blazey Trail man accused has been continued at $25,000.
Danis Arthur, 57, entered a not guilty plea at his arraignment Monday in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court. As a condition of the bond, he is to have no contact with the victim.
Arthur arrested about 3 a.m. Oct. 16 after police were called to 12290 Blazey Trail by a woman who said someone had been shot.
His son, 23, who lived at the home, was shot in the leg, Detective Lt. John Janowski said. He was treated MetroHealth Medical Center.
Janowski said he did not know what started the argument between the two, other than that the son wanted to go out to get cigarettes.
Danis Arthur is claiming he shot his son in self-defense, Janowski said.
He was indicted on charges of felonious assault, defacing identification marks on a firearm and domestic violence.
A report said police received a 911 call about 2:35 a.m. from a male who said he was dying. Dispatchers were able to call back and talked to the victim's sister, who said she was taking her brother to the hospital.
When officers went to the house, the suspect called dispatch to ask what was going on. Dispatchers told him to turn on the front porch light and put his hands up.
He was arrested without further incident.
First pretrial is set for Nov. 23, according to Maria Russo, spokeswoman for Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason.
