    Boy, 4, accidentally kills dad, wife says

    A Vallejo man was accidentally shot dead Saturday afternoon by his 4-year-old son, according to a preliminary report that police are investigating.

    Carol Sparks, the wife of the victim, who was identified as 32-year-old Brian Sparks, told the Vallejo Police Department that her husband was fatally shot by the boy, who was using a handgun, in their home on the 2900 block of Georgia Street.

    Police received a phone call from Carol Sparks at about 4:35 p.m.

    Brian Sparks was pronounced dead inside the small house, but it could not be immediately determined what had happened, police said.

    The victim was described in the Vallejo Times-Herald as an electrician who was on disability leave because of a work-related injury.

    Both the Times-Herald and KTVU news quoted a neighbor who said Brian Sparks was a gun collector. They also quoted neighbors who said the Sparkses seemed like a happy couple with a normal child.

    Police have assigned two detectives to the case. Carol Sparks was detained Saturday afternoon for questioning and was interviewed by police Saturday night.

    "At this point, they're still investigating," said Lt. Abel Tenorio of the Vallejo Police Department.

    +1 None of my sisters Kids at age four had the strength to operate a gun, much less had hands big enough to handle one.

    Sure, blame the toddler. Wife discovers husband cheating, trains toddler to fire accurately at evil father. No jail time for toddler, insurance money for the wife. I need to make sure all my guns are locked up. BRB
