Police have arrested the parents of the children claimed to be involved in an accidental shooting Monday. The parents are suspected of first degree murder. The mother claimed the 2 year old grabbed a handgun off of a bed and shot the 9 year old brother. Police found inconsistencies in her account and the father came home in the middle of the investigation with a poorly bandaged gunshot wound. The gunshot wound appeared to be punctured multiple times to make its cause less clear.
Police claim the parents delayed calling for medical help so they could clean up evidence. Investigators stated that the lack of visible blood and the extent of blood residue found indicated a significant amount of time had elapsed before help arrived. Evidence of blood was found in the trunk of the car driven home by the father.
