LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - A man accused of shooting his father then barricading himself in the family's home north of Sulphur was ruled mentally unfit to stand trial.

The American Press reports (http://bit.ly/18Ml5RA ) District Judge Ron Ware ruled Wednesday that 42-year-old Chad Dean Peshoff was mentally incompetent to stand trial on the recommendation of Dr. Patrick Hayes, a psychiatrist.

Peshoff is accused of shooting his father on Jan. 26. A 4 1/2-hour standoff ended when police threw flash-bang grenades and tear gas into the home.

Peshoff is charged with attempted second-degree murder.

Hayes said that when he examined Peshoff on Aug. 2, Peshoff understood the court proceedings at a factual level, but not at a functional level. Hayes said Peshoff showed symptoms of schizophrenia.
