The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office on Wednesday received the case file on the death of a San Jose police officer's son, who was killed by a handgun on July 5 in his Gilroy home.

Deputy District Attorney Steve Dick said he needs to review the file of how Preston Orlando, 3, was killed before he decides whether to file any charges or not. Preston was the son of Brandon Orlando, a nine-year veteran of the San Jose pollice.

Not many details have been revealed about how Preston died at the hands of a .45-caliber handgun gun - not his father's police weapon. Early reports indicate it was a tragic accident.

Gilroy police Sgt. Chad Gallacinao said his department, which conducted the investigation, did make a recommendation to the DA, but he did not say what it was.


No one has yet to release details on who owned the gun, how it was stored, or any of the other circumstances surrounding the death.

Dick did not state when his office would make a determination or not.
