Divine Chambliss, 31, was allegedly taking a nap when his son found a gun and accidentally shot him in the head in Birmingham, Alabama last Tuesday. Police are still not 100% sure the toddler was responsible, but they haven't been able to come up with any other explanation.
Chambliss was a security guard, which explains the ownership of the handgun, which was semiautomatic.
Despite the child's age, he seemed to recognize that he harmed his father, telling his mother "I hurt my dad."
Numerous children are involved in fatal accidents across the United States, but not many stories like this emerge.
