A 15-year-old girl was taken by helicopter to Tulsa after she was accidentally shot in her home Sunday afternoon in the Tucker community in northwest Le Flore County.
Le Flore County Sheriff Rob Seale said the girl and her 12-year-old sister were handling a .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun when one of the girls placed the gun on a counter. When the 15 year old reached down to get her cell phone, Seale said the gun discharged.
Seale said the girl’s mother was outside when the accident happened. He said an investigation is ongoing but it appears to be an accidental shooting.
“It looks pretty clear-cut accidental,” Seale said.
Did ya get that part, the "pretty clear-cut accidental" part? In backwards gun-loving states like Oklahoma, that's code for "we're not gonna hold the irresponsible gun owner accountable."
