A Bolingbrook man is in critical condition after being shot during a standoff with police. Police say they were called to an apartment on Drake Avenue Sunday night about a domestic disturbance when they found an elderly man who had been shot. The victim said his son had ordered him out of his home at gunpoint and shot him.

After about two hours, police confronted the son -- 45-year-old Joseph Schafer.

Police say an officer shot Shafer when he refused to drop his gun. Schafer was arrested on weapons violation. The officer is on administrative leave.
