Killed – Larry Hallett (Vero Beach, FL)

Larry Hallett

VERO BEACH, FL, 7/04/13: There is a noticeable void at slip A-06 in the Vero Beach City Marina these days. The Shoestring, the 31-foot sail boat, remains there but Larry Hallett, the craft’s owner and a friend of many islanders, is gone. Hallett—an experienced boat carpenter and massage therapist—accidentally shot himself to death while cleaning his gun as revelers ushered in the Independence Day holiday. When Hallett’s body was discovered, his Taurus 9mm Millennium, a semiautomatic firearm he had been trying to dispose of, was nearby. Harry Wheaton, his friend and slipmate, said the firearm came with The Shoestring when Hallett bought it. “He asked me if I had a gun and I said, ‘No I never want to carry one again,’” said Wheaton, a retired member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Wheaton said Hallett also had no use for the gun and even contacted the Vero Beach Police Department for advice on how to best to get rid of the weapon. Near the body were the gun’s magazine, a gun cleaning kit and instruction manual that read, “How to Clean Your Gun.”

Hallett – an experienced boat carpenter and massage therapist – accidentally shot himself to death while cleaning his gun as revelers ushered in the Independence Day holiday. His body was discovered July 6 inside the cabin of The Shoestring.

Triple Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Police Officer (Calais, ME)

male

CALAIS — Maine’s attorney general says it was reasonable for two police officers to believe they had to use deadly force in a July domestic violence-related shooting in Calais.

Police shot 26-year-old Daniel Pinney shortly after arriving at his home on July 3. They said Pinney had shot 21-year-old Megan Sherrard and their 6-week-old son, Luca. The woman was fleeing with her son.

Pinney later died; an autopsy showed he was struck twice in the chest and once in the arm by bullets fired from one of the officers, but that he actually killed himself, firing a gun at his head.

Sherrard and the baby recovered from their wounds.

CALAIS, Maine (AP) — State police said a shooting in the eastern Maine town of Calais left one man dead and a woman and baby wounded.

Police said the shooting Wednesday evening was an act of domestic violence.

Police said officers shot and killed 26-year-old Daniel Pinney shortly after arriving at a home on Main Street. They said Pinney had shot 21-year-old Megan Sherrard and their 6-week-old son, Luca.

Sherrard is undergoing treatment for serious gunshot wounds at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. The baby also was being treated for a gunshot wound to the foot.

A police officer was grazed by a bullet but is expected to make a full recovery.

State police and the Maine attorney general’s office are investigating the shooting.

ELIZABETHTON (AP) – The Carter County Sheriff’s Office has filed a reckless homicide petition against a 13-year-old boy in the BB gun death of a four-year-old.

The Johnson City Press reported the petition was filed in Juvenile Court after consultation with the district attorney general’s office.

Killed – Boy – William Owens (Bristol, WV)

male

Update

Harrison County Prosecuting Attorney Joe Shaffer issued the following statement Tuesday: “I will present the case to the upcoming term of the Harrison County Grand Jury for their consideration of whether any criminal charges would be appropriate. The reason I’m doing that is because the shooting victim is a family member, but you also have the issue of responsible gun ownership. It’s a good case for members of the community to decide if charges will be appropriate in this case.”

Update:

The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department has released information about a shooting on Jarvisville Road in the Bristol area of Harrison County that happened around 11:38 p.m. Sunday.

Sheriff Albert Marano said William Owens, 11, of Jarvisville, was lying in bed when he received a single gunshot wound to his chest. Just prior to the shooting, Owens’ grandmother, Tina Owens, 57, of Jarvisville and Owens’ father heard what they thought to be intruders tampering with their properties outside.

Tina Owens went outside to investigate, taking along a .40 caliber pistol and fired multiple shots to scare away the intruders. One of the shots went astray, said Sheriff Marano, traveling into the house wall and hitting William Owens in the chest. William later died from his injuries.

Tina Owens’ home and William Owens’ homes are about 200 ft. apart, said Marano. Tina hasn’t been charged although the investigation is ongoing. When complete, the details of the investigation will be submitted to Harrison County Prosecuting Attorney Joe Shaffer for further review, said Sheriff Marano.

Update:

Harrison County deputies confirmed that a 9-year old boy was shot Sunday night, and died from his injuries.

No other details were immediately available, but Harrison County Sheriff Albert Marano is expected to release more information Monday morning.

Original Story:

The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department responded to a report of a shooting late Sunday night, according to 911 records.

The records show the shooting happened on Jarvisville Road in the Bristol area around 11:38 p.m. Sunday. Units did not clear that scene until roughly 4 a.m. Monday morning.

Double Shooting – Killed – Qiana Moore (Buford, GA)

female

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Authorities now believe that a 70-year-old park ranger shot at Buford Dam Park last month was accidentally struck by a woman committing suicide.

The woman, 34-year-old Qiana Moore, shot D. Perry Wright in the abdomen while shooting herself at the Lower Overlook area of the park on June 27.

Ranger Wright and his family wish to express their extreme gratitude to those that responded to the incident of Wednesday evening; the Gwinnett County Police Department, paramedics and first responders, and the citizens who stopped and provided assistance. They are also overwhelmed with the number of messages they are receiving communicating concern, blessings, and wishes for a full recovery.

Ranger Wright is doing well in his recovery and expects to be discharged from the hospital sometime this week. Although additional recovery time will be needed at home, he looks forward to returning to the job he loves and particularly interacting and teaching children about water safety. As he is recovering, he often speaks of the joy it brings him to make a difference in these youngsters’ lives as he teaches them how to be safe around the water.

The family wishes to express their thanks and requests the media to allow them privacy for rest and recovery time.

WILKES-BARRE — A man has now been charged for a deadly shooting in Wilkes-Barre.
Police said Brandon Switzer, 22, accidentally shot Zachary Williams, who later died at the hospital after being shot in the head Tuesday afternoon.

Brandon Switzer of Nanticoke was led by detectives into a magistrate`s office where he was charged with a misdemeanor offense of involuntary manslaughter.

The arraignment happened just hours after Wilkes-Barre police were called to a home on North Sherman Street after police said Zachary Williams was found with a gunshot wound to the head.

After talking to Switzer and a third man, Edward Berkowitz, detectives learned the three men were inside Berkowitz’s home, playing with a hand gun.

Berkowitz told police he was in the bathroom when he heard a gunshot and saw Williams bleeding from the head. He called 911.

Switzer told police he and Williams were taking the magazine in and out of the gun and working the slide action.

Police said when Williams went to take the gun from Switzer, Switzer said they didn`t realize the gun was loaded and he accidentally released the trigger killing Williams.

Police were called to the scene at 32 N. Sherman St. at about 3:50 p.m. Officers took two men into custody. City police Chief Gerard Dessoye called the men “persons of interest” in the case.

On June 23 in New Orleans, Brandajah Smith — a dark-chocolate confection of a 5-year-old with a mind full of questions — needed milk for her cereal. But getting to the store and back was the kind of task easier to accomplish quickly without a little one in tow. So her mother, Ladericka Smith, set out alone and locked the door behind her, thinking that her little girl would be all right.

By 10:50 a.m., Smith found Brandajah lying unconscious but breathing at the bottom of a bedroom closet with a bullet wound near the center of her forehead. The little girl had found a .38 revolver belonging to the man with whom the family was staying.

Brandajah died a short time later after being taken off life support. Police arrested her mother and charged her with cruelty to a juvenile. In June a grand jury indicted Smith on charges of second-degree murder.

NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 14 (UPI) — A judge in New Orleans has reduced bail for a woman arrested after her 5-year-old daughter shot herself with a relative’s handgun.
Laderika Smith, 28, was charged with second-degree murder after her daughter, Brandajah, fatally shot herself June 23. A judge ruled on Sept. 26 that the evidence did not support that charge, but Smith remains in jail while prosecutors appeal, the (New Orleans) Times-Picayune reported.

Killed – Man (Maryvale, AZ)

male

Joe Colter didn’t receive an owner’s manual when he bought his 9mm handgun. If he had, he might have read the part that explains how when you rack the slide to eject a bullet, another bullet takes its place. And he might have prevented the accidental death of a friend.

Police say Colter, a 20-year-old Glendale resident, admitted he and a friend were joking around Wednesday night when he unintentionally shot and killed the friend, who is not named in court documents.

Just before midnight, Colter and some friends played video games at an apartment in Maryvale. Colter had the 9mm in his back pocket, which he had bought three months earlier online. The friends were teasing each other and commenting about the gun.

Colter says he had fired the handgun once before, at a range. He says he’d shot 14 rounds using the gun and has never been trained to use a gun. (Also, he never should have been able to buy the weapon because he’s under 21. Furthermore, it’s illegal to carry a concealed weapon if you’re under 21.)

Colter reached his hand into his back pocket and, keeping it hidden behind his back, racked the gun but neglected to take the clip out, according to records. When the live bullet ejected, another took its place.

Colter pointed the gun at his friend and pulled the trigger. Instead of hearing a metallic click, he heard a bang.

His friend fell to the floor, shot in the right shoulder.

Colter tried to render aid and called police. Emergency responders rushed the victim to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where he eventually died.

Police spoke with Colter and other witnesses at the gathering, who all said it appeared to be an accident and that the two men were good friends.

Killed by 4-year-old Son – Justin Stanfield Thomas (Prescott Valley, AZ)

Justin Stanfield Thomas1

PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. — A 4-year-old boy who was visiting Prescott Valley with his dad grabbed a loaded handgun from a television stand, asked what it was and pulled the trigger, killing the man in what police say was a tragic accident.

Justin Stanfield Thomas, 34, had traveled from Phoenix to a friend’s home on Friday to pick up some of his things from a duplex where he lived until earlier this year, police said. The boy quickly found a .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun, showed it to his dad and fired it, authorities said.

“Daddy got blood on him,” the boy later told investigators.

Police Sgt. Brandon Bonney said Monday that it didn’t appear that the tenant – James Williams, 26 – knew Thomas and his son would be visiting or had enough time to secure the weapon before they arrived. No children lived in the house.

Officers responded to a Prescott Valley residence about 12:30 p.m. for a shots fired call. According to PVPD, Thomas’ 4-year-old son accidentally shot him.

Killed – Female Teen – Emilee Bates (Joshua, TX)

Emilee Bates

A Texas teen was accidentally shot dead by her own step-brother on her 13th birthday as he cleaned his AK-47, police said.

Austin McCord, 19, was trying to remove rounds from the deadly assault weapon at their home in Joshua on Tuesday evening when a bullet fired and hit Emilee Bates in the stomach.

Cops were called at 8:11 p.m. Bates was airlifted to a hospital in Fort Worth but died two hours later.

Investigators believe McCord had ejected two dummy rounds above his loaded magazine.

Thinking he’d made the weapon safe, he pulled the trigger to drop the bolt.

But he’d forgotten about the loaded magazine, and ended up firing a bullet at the Loflin Middle School student.

No charges are expected to be filed, with Johnson County Sheriff’s Department believing the tragedy to be “110% an accident.”

“There’s no question in our minds this is just a horribly tragic accident,” Sheriff Bob Alford told the Burleson Star.

“(McCord) did everything he could do after the firearm was discharged.”

CHEROKEE COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

Child Protective Services has taken custody of the other children who were living in the home in Cherokee County, where a two-year-old child shot and killed himself with a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun.

Two-year-old Trenton Mathis was pronounced dead on Wednesday afternoon at a hospital in Tyler, after the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office said he shot himself in the face.

According to Trenton’s great-grandmother Carolyn Mathis, Trenton had eaten two pieces of gum Wednesday, and he asked his great-grandfather for more. His great-grandfather told Trenton he could have some after dinner. Later, Trenton went into his great-grandparent’s bedroom, looking for gum. Carolyn said Trenton’s great-grandfather left his handgun on the nightstand, but he thought he had closed and locked the door. Carolyn said the door was locked, but it was not closed all the way. Trenton was able to go into the bedroom, and then he climbed onto the bed and searched the nightstand looking for gum. Instead, he found the handgun.

The Cherokee County Sheriff said the Trenton shot himself around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday in the Shadybrook Subdivision near Lake Palestine, west of Bullard.

Killed – Sandra Andrade (Palmview, TX)

female

EDINBURG — The boyfriend of a cook slain Friday at a bar near Palmview has been charged with murder.

Hidalgo County Justice of the Peace Homer Jasso charged Anthony Stewart, 28, on Tuesday in the shooting of Sandra Andrade, 23.

Stewart is accused of killing Andrade early Friday morning with a handgun at La Cocina Bar near the intersection of Mile 2 North and La Homa Road, then asking a friend to bury the weapon.

“It was an accident,” Stewart said through tears at Tuesday’s arraignment.

But Sheriff Lupe Treviño is skeptical the shooting could have been accidental.

“Then why hide the weapon if it was an accident?” he asked. “The weapon — a .25-caliber Beretta — that is a brand-name weapon. Those don’t go off unless you pull the trigger.”

Killed – Boy – Keshawn Carter Davis (Greenville, TX)

male

Greenville police say a child was accidentally shot and killed inside a home Friday morning.

According to police, they received a 911 call at about 10:45 a.m. that someone had been shot inside a residence.

The first officer arrived at the scene only a minute later and located the injured 12-year-old child, identified as Keshawn Carter Davis. The child was transported to Hunt Regional Medical Center in Greenville where he was later pronounced dead.

Police said the child was shot once and that the shooting appears to be accidental, but that how the children came into possession of the gun and what led to the shooting are under investigation.

“By all accounts, there were no adults present when the shooting occurred. Five children, ages 4, 9 and three 12-year olds, were the only people in the home at the time of the shooting,” said Daniel Busken, Greenville Chief of Police.

Killed – Girl – Maggie Hollifield (Crozet, VA)

Maggie Hollifield

Tuesday at 10 a.m., the call went out for help. Albemarle County police say a 14-year-old boy shot Maggie and killed her on the 1400 block of McAllister Street. Albemarle County police remained on the scene for several hours to conduct their investigation.

Maggie Hollifield’s obituary describes a camp-loving 10-year-old who died from a “tragic accident” in her Crozet home. Albemarle Commonwealth’s Attorney Denise Lunsford agrees and will not seek indictments against the girl’s 13-year-old brother nor her parents for the fatal May 21 shooting.

Maggie’s father, Paul Hollifield, pastor at Commonwealth Christian Community, which operates Victory Hill Church of God After School Care, and his wife Anne had left their four children home that Tuesday morning to attend to business. That was not unusual for the home-schooled children, who ranged in ages from 9- to 15-years-old, according to a June 13 letter from Lunsford to Steve Sellers, Albemarle police chief, detailing what happened.

The night before, the brother had cleaned and taken apart his shotgun in the living room. The gun had been given to him by a relative and was not working properly, says the prosecutor’s letter.

The next morning, he was making a modification to the gun and had taken out the shells but forgot one in the chamber. In cycling shells through the gun to make sure it was working, the firearm discharged and struck Maggie, who was standing behind a love seat upon which their 9-year-old sibling was sitting.

David Allen Moholland

A 21-year-old South Carolina woman has been charged with murder after she admitted killing her 20-year-old boyfriend, but she insists the whole thing was an accident.

Spartanburg police said that Erika Michelle Sutelman shot David Allen Moholland in the chest with a 12-gauge shotgun at an apartment where they were staying as guests at around 5:45 p.m. on Monday.

Anastasia Adair1

FEDERAL HEIGHTS, Colo. – Witnesses tell police a Federal Heights woman was killed when the new assault rifle she was showing to friends accidentally fired on Tuesday night

Witnesses and the husband told police the group had been drinking in the garage of the couple’s home at 10024 Elliot St. when 22-year-old Anastasia Adair, a new gun enthusiast, went upstairs to a bedroom to get her recently purchased assault rifle.

Anastasia was walking back down the stairs into the garage when she reached out to hand the rifle to her husband, Shane Adair, who was below her on the stairs. The gun fired, striking her in the head, two witnesses and the husband told police.

Shane Adair told police he’s not sure if he touched the gun as his wife reached out to hand it to him, Federal Heights Police Lt. Gary Toldness said. The gun fired a second time as the wounded woman fell forward on the stairs and her husband caught her in his arms, but that shot didn’t hit anyone, police said.

Anastasia was transported by ambulance to Denver Health Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead, Toldness said.

The incident occurred around 10:40 p.m. Tuesday.

HOUSTON (KTRK) – A 16-year-old is dead after a gun accidentally went off inside a car in west Harris County Tuesday evening, say investigators.

It happened Tuesday at around 6:30pm. As many as five teens were in a silver sedan at the time the gun was discharged.

Killed – Toddler – Kinsler Allen Davis (Corsicana, TX)

Kinsler Allen Davis

CORSICANA — A toddler died late Wednesday after accidentally shooting himself.

Corsicana Police Chief Randy Bratton said the boy’s 35-year-old father called 911 just before 9 p.m. and told dispatchers his son shot himself at the family’s home on North 30th Street.

Kinsler Allen Davis was taken to Navarro Regional Hospital and then flown by helicopter to Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, where doctors pronounced him dead just after 11 p.m. The boy was less than a month away from his third birthday.

A preliminary investigation shows the boy found the handgun inside a bedroom and fired it. The bullet hit him in the head, Chief Bratton said. The boy’s father was in a walk-in closet in the bedroom where the boy was, feet away from where the accident occured. Initially, the chief reported the father to be in another room but he later said that was incorrect.

Killed – Clayton Law (Murray, KY)

Clayton Law1

MURRAY (AP) – A Murray State University student has died after being shot in the head with a handgun.

Calloway County Coroner Ricky Harris says 23-year-old Clayton Law of Elizabethtown died early Sunday morning when he fired the handgun.

Harris says the state medical examiner will perform an autopsy and the results will be available in about a week.

Murray State University Vice President Mike Young told The Paducah Sun that the gun accidentally went off as Law, a veteran of the U.S. Army, showed it to a friend.

Clayton Law, 23, was from the Elizabethtown area. Harris said he was called to the Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity house at 911 N. 16th St. at approximately 12:30 a.m. Sunday, and he pronounced Law dead at 1:11 a.m. Law was taken to the Kentucky Medical Examiner’s Office in Louisville for an autopsy because the Madisonville office is closed on weekends. Harris said Monday that the preliminary report had been completed and the official report would probably be finished in about a week.
