A 9-year-old girl accidentally killed her own shooting instructor in Arizone, US, when he was guiding her how to use an automatic Uzi, a sub-machine gun. Charles Vacca, 39, succumbed to his injuries in a hospital in Las Vegas after he was airlifted.
A video released by officials shows the 9-year-old, wearing a gray T-shirt and pink shorts with her hair pulled back in a long braid, holding the firearm in both hands. Vacca, standing to her left, tells her to turn her left leg forward. “All right, go ahead and give me one shot,” he tells the girl, whose back is to the camera during the entire 27-second video. He then cheers when she fires one round at the target. “All right full auto,” Vacca says.
The video, however, does not show the actual incident, ends with a series of shots being heard. Authorities said the girl was at the shooting range with her parents. Her name was not released.
