Jesus Take The Wheel: Teenager Commits Suicide After Accidentally Shooting His Girlfriend While Cleaning His Gun!

- By Bossip Staff

Damn, this is sad as sh*t.

An 18-year-old gamekeeper in training in the Scottish Highlands is believed to have accidentally shot dead his 16-year-old girlfriend and then killed himself out of remorse, according to reports.

The Herald newspaper reported Sophie Taylor, 16, died from gunshot wounds at a cottage on the Glenavon estate near Tomintoul, which is known as the highest village in the Highlands.

It said her boyfriend, Calum Murray, 18, was thought to have then shot himself in a tragedy was witnessed by two friends.

The Aberdeen-based Press and Journal newspaper reported that the young couple had been sweethearts since meeting last summer at a Highland games event.

A lifelong friend of Taylor, Connor McPherson, told the paper that the teenager had “really liked Calum a lot.”
Connor’s father, Dru McPherson, said their death were like “a Greek tragedy.”

“The story around the village is that there were two couples there and the two males were cleaning their guns and the gun went off in the house and killed Sophie, at which point Calum got up and went out to the front porch and shot himself,” he told the Press and Journal.

“The only saving grace is apparently there was the other couple there who witnessed the whole thing. There will be no conjecture with this one. It’s all sorted out,” he added.

R.I.P. to both teens, and condolences to both families.

    This is a real tragedy, may both of them rest in peace. I hope this also serves as a lesson on how careful you have to be if you handle dangerous weapons.

  • Faith

    Very sad, but he wouldn’t have gone to prison for life… life isn’t really life in the UK unless you do something REALLY messed up.

    He would have gotten gross negligence manslaughter and probably a suspended sentence because of the mitigating circumstances. Poor kids.
