(AP) — Police are investigating after a 21-year-old man and his 50-year-old stepfather were shot in an incident that apparently stemmed from a fight at a house party in Revere.

A spokesman for the Suffolk District Attorney's office said in a statement that investigators believe the younger man was kicked out of the party but later returned with his stepfather, and the pair began striking the home with rocks and baseball bats.

Authorities said that prompted the homeowner, 77-year-old Robert Distefano, to go outside with a handgun. When the two men approached him, Distefano fired the weapon according to the statement.

Both men were hospitalized with gunshot wounds but were expected to survive.

Distefano was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm within a home, a misdemeanor, but was not charged in connection with the shooting itself.
