POTOSI - A father faces more criminal charges, after his son was accidentally shot in the head at home last week. Ricky Lee Rulo Jr., 29, is charged with endangering the welfare of a child and possessing a firearm while intoxicated. Washington County Prosecutor John Rupp says Rulo had a loaded rifle after smoking marijuana. He is held without bond after being accused of violating his probation from a previous drug conviction. Authorities said Rulo was under the influence when the weapon he was handling fired a bullet through a wall and wounded his son in the head. The boy is in critical condition at a St. Louis hospital.
