Hayward police believe a teenager shot his father in the head on Wednesday and now they're trying to figure out why.

Police arrested the 15-year-old last night in a park near the family's home at Gading Road and Sheridan Lane.

Investigators also found the weapon, a handgun... They're now looking into who owns it and how the teen got a hold of the gun.

The 36-year-old father is in the hospital with a serious head wound.

Police say it's unclear if the shooting was deliberate an accident or self-defense.
