Dad Shoots Self, Son Shoots Mom - WTF?

Mother Accidentally Shot by Son, Father also Injured

BAY MINETTE, Ala. - The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office said a small child accidentally shot his mother, after finding the gun near his injured father's side. Around 9:00 p.m. the BCSO was alerted of the shooting at 4621 old Carney Road in Bay Minette. When they arrived to the home they found Allen and Aleisha Jones injured by gunshot. The couples two small children were at the residence when the incident happened. Their daughter was upstairs asleep at the time of the incident. When questioned by authorities, Mr. Jones stated he had taken his Glock .40 handgun from the glove compartment of his truck. He was walking to the house when he tripped and fell, then accidentally shot himself in the leg just above the knee. Jones yelled to his wife for help. Aleisha was upstairs bathing their young son when she heard her husband's call for help. When she arrived on the screened porch, she tried to secure the gun but her son beat her to the gun. After attempting to take the gun from the child, a round was fired. Aleisha was hit in the left side of her neck. A neighbor heard the gunshots and cries for help and came to Aleisha's aid. Her Husband called 911. When authorities arrived, Allen and Aleisha were transported to USA in Mobile. Investigators say both individuals stories parallel each other. At last report, the Jones' were in stable condition. Injuries do not appear to be life threatening. There are no charges at this time.

Am I the only one not buying this? Why was the dude bringing his Glock into the house? My bet is that he was gonna go postal on the whole family or at least the wife. No safety on? Finger on the trigger? It says here Mr. Jones was up to no good. Pay attention! (And get the women and children out of the house!)
