A three-year-old Indiana boy killed his father after finding his loaded handgun and accidentally shooting him.
Police say Michael A Bayless, 33, was watching TV with two of his three children when the three-year-old discovered the pistol on Friday night.
When emergency crews arrived at the house in Salem, Indiana, Mr Bayless was already dead, having passed away in front of his family.
Mr Bayless and his family are from Martinsville, an Indiana town 80 miles to the north, the Louisville Courier-Journal reports.
He was at the home in Salem to do remodeling work on it.
It is unknown where Mr Bayless left the gun that his young son had access to it.
No one else was injured in the shooting and police have ruled it accidental, the newspaper reports.
The incident occurred about 10pm after Mr Bayless finished work on the house for the day.

Police say a 3-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his father after finding the man’s loaded handgun in a southern Indiana home.
Indiana State Police Sgt. Jerry Goodin says the 33-year-old Martinsville man had brought his gun with him Friday to a home he was remodeling in Salem, about 25 miles northwest of Louisville, Ky.
Goodin says the man, his wife, their three children and a juvenile relative were at the home when the 3-year-old boy apparently found the gun and it accidentally discharged, fatally wounding the man. No one else was injured.
Goodin says the case remains under investigation and prosecutors will determine if any adult should face charges. He calls the case a “tragic accident and a tragic mistake” of leaving a gun within a child’s reach.
