Charles Vacca has been identified as the gun instructor who was killed after being shot by a 9-year-old girl firing a 9 mm Uzi-style submachine gun, KDVR reports.
Charles Vacca was wounded about 10 a.m. at a shooting range in White Hills, Ariz. He later died at a local hospital.
KDVR reports the girl fired once on purpose and then lost control of the gun, with four more rounds discharging. Police said recoil caused the gun to accidentally point upwards, firing over the girl’s head, and hitting Charles Vacca in the head, KDVR reports.
