CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - A Tarpon Springs man has been charged with culpable negligence, five months after his 6-year-old old son shot his 3-year-old brother.

Police arrested 35-year-old Rockny G. Carpio on Tuesday. He was later released on $2,000 bail.

The family was living in Clearwater in February, when the 6-year-old found a semiautomatic gun in the father's bedroom. The child accidentally shot the 3-year-old in the chest. The younger boy survived.

Investigators found several unsecured firearms in the home.
