A Fresno father charged with failing to store a gun properly entered a surprise plea Monday, in Fresno County Superior Court. Jarred Dubois pleaded "no contest" to first degree improper storage of a firearm. Police say last month Dubois' two year old son got a hold of a gun before shooting his six year old half-sister. Emily Lavender died at the Northeast Fresno home.
