A Nacogdoches County man has turned himself in to authorities after allegedly fleeing the scene from a shooting Monday evening.

Lester Mallord is being charged with aggravated assault. Mallord is accused of shooting his father-in-law, Melvin Wortham, in the chest.

This all happened after a family disturbance out in the small community of Lilbert, near Cushing.

Mallord's wife said the shooting was an accident.
