Mabry’s wife, Marie Ayala, claimed the family of five were in the bedroom of the home they rented in East Orange County, Fla., when they heard a loud bang.

That’s when she realized Mabry had been shot.

But it was the five-year-old boy who allegedly told authorities the truth about who fired the gun.

“The gun was improperly stored,” Orange County Sheriff John Mina said.

“In fact, it was easily accessible even for a 2-year-old, and the result is a tragedy that no one in this community can really understand.”

The gun in question was a Glock 19 semi-automatic, according to the New York Post. It was left in a bag on the floor of the house, the outlet reports.

Aside from the gun not being properly stored, both Mabry and Ayala are convicted felons.

Court records show the two were on probation after child neglect and drug offenses, according to WESH.

Florida law requires loaded firearms to be kept in a locked box. If children under the age of 16 have access to the gun, it must have a trigger lock.

Authorities announced on June 6 that 28-year-old Ayala was charged with involuntary manslaughter and possession of a firearm by a criminal.

Ayala is being held in an Orange County jail without attachment.

If convicted, she faces up to 15 years in prison.

“Now these little kids have effectively lost both parents. Her father is dead. Her mother is in prison and a little child has to live his life knowing that he shot his father,” Mina said.
