A MAN has been arrested after police claim he shot the grandfather of a boy who had pulled his daughter’s hair.

Anthony Franklin (28) was arrested by police in New York earlier this week over the incident.

Franklin told police that he heard a classmate of his daughter had pulled her hair on the bus to school.

He went over to the house of the boy involved, where he got into a confrontation with the boy’s grandfather.

As things became heated, Franklin pulled out a gun and shot the man twice.

The grandfather was airlifted to hospital, where he is said to be in a stable condition.

Franklin remains in police custody.
