He had originally told investigators that she had been murdered by an intruder at the family’s home in Forestdale, Alabama.

Ayobiyi Cook, a nurse, whom friends called “Yo-Yo,” was found dead after midnight on Aug. 6. in the suburban home on the 2400 block of Freemont Avenue.

The boy, who had not been identified by Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office investigators, had originally told police that an intruder had entered their home, shot his mother, and then ran away.

“The child originally made up a story that the detectives determined was not possible,” said deputy chief David Agee.

“After investigation, the sheriff’s detectives determined that the victim’s 12-year-old son inadvertently fired a firearm and struck his mother, killing her.”

After more research, the boy finally changed his story.

And in March, a little boy accidentally killed his mother when he found a gun while he was in a car with his mother Daejah Bennett, 22, and father Romell Watson, 23.

The incident happened in Chicago after the boy played with the gun and aimed at it and fired a shot to his mother’s neck.

She was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

It comes as the advocacy group Everytown for gun safety released an analysis showing that there have been 194 accidental shootings by children in the US so far this year.

This resulted in 82 deaths and 123 injuries, and the group said, “Every year, hundreds of children in the US gain access to firearms and inadvertently shoot themselves or someone else.”
