The Alameda County district attorney said it would take two weeks to complete an investigation into the shooting death of Oscar Grant by a BART cop. But it took police in East Palo Alto only 24 hours to make an arrest in an accidental shooting that happened there. What's up with that?
Man arrested in connection with toddler's shooting

(01-10) 13:10 PST EAST PALO ALTO, CA (AP) --

A 33-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the accidental shooting of a 2-year-old boy, police said.

East Palo Alto Police Detective Angel Sanchez said Sergio Sanchez turned himself in Friday.

The toddler was fatally shot in the chest by his 12-year-old cousin, who had found the rifle in the garage. Sergio Sanchez owned the rifle.

Authorities said the boy's family had asked Sergio Sanchez — a family friend who was staying at the home — to get rid of the weapon.

A one-time deported felon, Sergio Sanchez was arrested for storing a firearm in a place accessible by children. He was also arrested for being a felon in possession of firearm and violating probation.

The toddler, Andrew Grewe, died at the hospital shortly before midnight Thursday. Authorities have not released the name of the 12-year-old boy.
