TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) – A man has been arrested after authorities say he shot his 8-year-old son multiple times in the buttocks with a BB gun.

The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office says the abuse was discovered by the child's counselor at Lakeview Elementary School when the child mentioned it. Reportedly, the child has several marks on his buttocks and thighs and some of the BB's had broken the skin.

The child's father, 28-year-old Lewis Terrance Brown, has been charged with torture and willful abuse of a child.
