The 2-year-old Alabama boy killed his father in an accidental shooting.

Hoover police Capt. Gregg Rector says investigators have all but ruled out suicide and other scenarios in the shooting.

Rector says an autopsy is being conducted Wednesday on the 31-year-old man. He was found shot once in the head in an apartment on Tuesday afternoon, and no one else was inside other than the toddler.

Rector says there’s no sign of an intruder or a self-inflicted wound, and police know there was a semiautomatic pistol in the apartment.
