On January 23 a 4-year-old accidentally shot his mother with a shotgun left in the car by his father.
The boy’s father, 24-year-old Brandon Gilbert Ambriz of Norwalk, pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. He was immediately sentenced to five years in state prison.
At the time of the incident there were three other children present in the vehicle. None of them were harmed.
