The grandfather then retrieved the gun and called the emergency services, reports ABC.

The gun belonged to Mr Herbert, and the couple were the boy’s legal guardians and had full custody of him.

The Sheriff’s Office said there had been no signs the boy would harm himself or anyone else.

“In the preliminary stages of this investigation there had been no previous signs that the grandson might harm someone or himself and there was no cause for concern prior to this event,” MCSO said in a statement.
