Prescott Valley police said a 4-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his father around 12:30 a.m. Friday while they were at a friend’s house.They said 35-year-old Justin Stanfield Thomas and his son drove up from Phoenix for an unannounced visit to see his former roommate.

Within minutes of being inside the home, the 4-year-old found a gun, picked it up and asked what it was.
It discharged – hitting his dad.”He was still in his pajamas when all this happened,” said Jeremy Hartt, the former roommate’s next-door neighbor. “But I mean, he keeps a loaded gun for protection. He used to be a military police officer.”

Thomas was taken to a Prescott-area hospital in extremely critical condition, where he died from his injuries.Hartt, who also knew Thomas, told CBS5 News he was an Iraq War veteran and a former member of the Army’s Green Beret – who loved his little boy.
