9 Year Old NJ Girl Kills Gun Instructor in Accident
Posted August 27th, 2014 @ 6:41am

An accident involving a 9 year old New Jersey girl has left a gun instructor dead.

The girl was taking lessons from Charles Vacca, 39, in Arizona.  The girl apparently lost control of the Uzi she was using when it recoiled.  It flew over her head and a bullet struck Vacca.

He was airlifted to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

“This is a rarity for something like this to happen,” a spokesperson with the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office told the Los AngelesTimes.

The shooting range is named “Bullets and Burgers” and has a minimum age requirement of 8 years old.  The sheriff’s office released video of the lessons just before the accident.

The girl was on vacation in Arizona with her family.
