Killed – Bryan Scott Reno (Mooresboro, NC)

Bryan Scott Reno

CLEVELAND COUNTY, N.C. — A Cleveland County man was shot and killed by his 11-year-old step-daughter Friday in what the sheriff is calling a tragic accident.

Bryan Scott Reno, 19, died late Friday night while showing a gun he had just purchased to his step-daughter. The girl’s mother had gone to bed.

According to Cleveland County Sheriff Alan Norman, Reno had removed the clip from the .380 caliber handgun before handing it to his step-daughter, who was not named. The gun fired while the girl was holding it, hitting and killing Reno.

Sheriff Norman said at a press conference Saturday that the tragedy affects the whole community, especially the little girl.

To see how this can affect a child, said Norman, and you don’t know what adverse effect it’s going to have on that child later in life.

‘It’s a tragedy': Pamela placed the 911 call Friday night around 10:45 p.m. Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene at 421 Lemmons Road shortly after receiving the call. “The stepfather had actually purchased a firearm yesterday from a friend,” said Norman. “He had taken the clip out of the firearm and was looking at the gun and showing the firearm to the stepdaughter. He handed the firearm to the daughter. We don’t know if the stepfather knew there was one (bullet) actually in the chamber.”
