Their first instinct was to run. I think any jury would convict her with that video.

Also, is there any chance that he will survive that. I know the article says listed in critical condition, but unless the round deflected towards the outside of the skull, I don't see how that is survivable...

What a shame.
You would be surprised how many head shootings people "survive". My aunt is an ER nurse in a big city and has seen people come in with gruesome wounds to the front of their head when they try to commit suicide with a gun. I use the word "survive in quotes because they usually wind up on a ventilator until it is removed.

Life is a precious gift and there is way too much stupid in that car. I wouldn't want to see that.

Play stupid games.... win stupid prizes....
It looks to me she intentionally did it. She meant to pull the trigger. Wether she knew the gun was loaded or not I don’t know but that trigger press was deliberate. She should go to prison for murder.

That video is horrific. But it is a sober reminder that guns are no joke. Idiots all around.

You could see he wasn't happy with her handling the gun. Then he went passive as she chambered a round, pointed it at him, and pulled the trigger. But of course, "It was an accident."

Apparently the new thing. Getting shot in the head while someone is videoing live.

This time Detriot and a rifle.

This time accidentally put finger on trigger.

Apparently knew doing that was bad.

Public learning?

I just saw on the news she is only charges with, tampering with evidence. She cleaned her hands and told cops that he shot himself. He is on a respirator and she is out on a $2,500 bail. -per Fox 26 news

As you may already know, her charges got upgraded. I still wonder if this was intentional.

Yep! Learned my lesson when I was handed a 12 gauge shotgun. I started to pull the pump back to check and the guy who handed it to me got offended and said "its empty I checked it!" I paused looked and him and finished pulling the pump handle back and what do you know but a 12 gauge slug popped out onto the floor. All I got was an "oopps". Yeah big OOPPS!

I actually kinda know the guy who was shot. He's related to a woman, whose daughter is on my kids cheer team down in league city. She says he's actually recovering, but it's still a long road I'm sure.

My now 17 year old daughter has been going to the range with me since she was 7. Whenever I hand her a gun, I drop the mag (if applicable) and rack it first right in front of her, then tell her it's unloaded. She never fails to immediately point it in the safest possible direction and then check for herself. This is something that I have taught her, and it should be as natural as checking the fuel level in a vehicle before you start to drive. It needs to be an ingrained habit that is done reflexively. Every time. If someone gets offended by me doing this when they have handed me a gun, then they are a moron.

I wouldn't be surprised if the woman who pulled the trigger ends up getting charged.
I'm no lawyer and I don't pretend to be one on the internet but that sure looks like a textbook case of involuntary manslaughter and probably voluntary manslaughter as well.

She'd have a possible argument of "I didn't know it was loaded" that she might be able to sell to a jury and even a prosecutor right up to the point at which she racked a round into the chamber.

She's toast.
