Cop whose two year-old was shot to be questioned Monday

The police constable whose two year old son was fatally shot in Braeton, St. Catherine on Thursday, is to be questioned by INDECOM investigators on Monday.
   
The investigators were preparing to question him on Friday, however, this had to be postponed as the policeman is said to be too traumatised to give a statement.
   
His firearm has been seized by INDECOM for testing.
   
It is reported that about 6 p.m. on Thursday, the policeman, who is attached to Mobile Reserve, went home after feeling ill. 
   
He fell asleep with his firearm but he awoke shortly after and saw his son with the pistol.
   
It's reported that the policeman was attempting to retrieve the firearm from the toddler when it went off.
   
The child was shot in the head.
   
The policeman and his wife were rushing the injured boy to the hospital when the vehicle crashed into a taxi along the Braeton main road. 
   
The child later succumbed to his injury.
