Wichita police are investigating videos posted on Facebook that reportedly show a Taser being used on two half-brothers, authorities said.

A 36-year-old woman called shortly after 1 a.m. Monday to report seeing the videos, Capt. Dan East said. She said the videos shows her 14-year-old son being hit with the Taser, as well as his 14-year-old half-brother.

The woman claims the boys’ father, a 45-year-old man, is the person using the Taser, according to a police document. The woman said her son has a visible injury evident on his left shoulder.
