A three-year old Saudi Arabian boy who reportedly shot his father dead has been defended by his grandfather, it was reported, who described the incident as “just an accident”.

According to local paper the Saudi Gazette, Ali Al-Fifi slammed media reports that his grandson gunned down his father last week because he refused to buy him a Sony PlayStation.

“These are baseless rumours; news that doesn’t have a shred of truth,” Al-Fifi said of media reporting on the shooting.

 “My grandchild is an innocent kid who doesn’t know the concept of death. He was the favourite child of his late father. What happened was just an accident. Period”

Al-Fifi added that the three-year old, Nawaf, may have mistaken his father’s pistol for a toy gun.

The body of the victim, Mufrah Al-Fifi, was reportedly discovered by his three wives.

Police are said to be investigating the incident, which happened in Saudi Arabia's southern Jizan area.
