NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Metro Nashville Police say a man handling a pistol in a motel room has fatally shot one of his sons.
Police said they do not believe the shooting was intentional.
A gunshot to the chest of 10-month-old Adam Bass resulted in the baby's death Thursday night.
Police said the boy's father, 30-year-old Larry Bass, was holding the semi-automatic pistol when it discharged. Also in the room were Bass' wife and the couple's other sons, ages 3 and 2. They were not hurt.
Detective said Larry Bass is an iron worker, who was doing work at the Music City Center site. The family is from Texas and was staying at an Extended Stay America near Nashville International Airport.
