Teenager Killed By Accidentally Discharged Bullet, Gunman Killed In Retaliation
We have no doubt that this story will be broached on Thursday night when President Obama holds his town hall meeting about gun control.
A 21-year-old gunman was shot and killed after accidentally discharging a weapon in a Tennessee home, striking a 13-year-old girl holding a baby, according to a local report.
A bullet from the misfired weapon burst through the floor at the Memphis apartment and critically wounded the teenager at around 7:15 p.m. Monday. The bullet also grazed the 12-week-old baby, the Commercial Appeal reported.
A person who heard the shot rushed upstairs and gunned down the fleeing shooter.
The baby was hospitalized in stable condition.
What an ugly scene. 2 lives lost over what? The irresponsible handling of gun. SMH.
