(Scroll down for video) A young father was found dead in his home with a gunshot wound to his head after being shot by his own son, police in Alabama said.

Birmingham police said that a wife came home to find her 31-year-old husband dead on the floor.

Police believe that the man’s 2-year-old son may have accidentally shot him in the head on Tuesday.

There is no evidence of an intruder and the gunshot wound was not self inflicted, leading police to believe that the boy shot his father.

The man and the boy were the only two people who were present in the home when the incident occurred. The gun was owned by the victim.
