Somebody called 911 from the home of 47-year-old Bashir Haidar of Alameda, California.The call was for a child that was having trouble breathing. When firefighters arrived and knocked on the door Haidar asked them if they had a gun because he wanted to shoot his wife and son. I’m sure it didn’t take police long to get to the house after that statement.
Investigators determined that Haidar choked his 7-year-old son with his bare hands although the motive is unknown.
The boy is in serious but stable condition.
Thanks to LadyJade for the tip.
