A four-year old Saudi boy shot and killed his father after he refused to buy him a Sony PlayStation, it has been reported.

The child, aged four years and seven months, used his father’s pistol to shoot him in the head, said the police media spokesman for Saudi Arabia's southern Jizan area.

According to KSA-based Asharq daily, the child had asked his father to buy him the video game system, but when the man returned home without the requested item, the shooting took place.

As the man was getting undressed, he put his weapon down on the table, when the child grabbed the gun and opened fire.

Police have opened an investigation into the incident.
