ADELANTO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man they say accidentally shot to death his 7-year-old son at their Southern California desert home.

Daniel Cervantes was shot shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday at his home in Adelanto and died at a hospital.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s investigators arrested his father Friday afternoon on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter.

Forty-year-old Julio Cervantes remains jailed and it’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.

Details of the shooting haven’t been released.
