An Oklahoma City man is accused of shooting his 14-year-old son in the foot with a BB gun, police said.

Kevin Dean Baldwin, 37, was arrested Monday on complaints of assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic abuse in the presence of a minor, jail officials said.

Police were called about 9:45 p.m. Friday to Integris Canadian Valley Hospital in Yukon about a domestic shooting, according to the police report.

The mother told the officer the teen had a puncture on the top of his foot from where his father intentionally shot him with a BB gun. She told the officer the shooter said, “I just shot your son in the foot. Gotta learn a lesson,” according to the report.

The teen told the officer he was outside, reloading his BB gun when he accidentally pointed the gun at his friend. Baldwin took the gun away from the boy and asked if he knew how badly it would hurt to get shot. Baldwin pumped the gun at least twice and intentionally discharged it onto the top of the boy's foot, according to the report.

The mother told the officer her 8-year-old daughter also was present when the incident occurred.

Baldwin is being held without bail in the Oklahoma County jail, officials said Tuesday.
