Police responded to a call from the suspect, Sanela Suhopoljac, 22, after she accidentally shot Jonathan Heath, 29, in the head. Suhopoljac lives at the residence. Also present was another adult witness. All three individuals were at the residence voluntarily, the release stated.
As a result of the investigation, Suhopoljac was arrested for aggravated assault due to engaging in reckless conduct that resulted in serious bodily injury to another.
“Specific details of exactly how the entire incident unfolded are still under investigation, but it is believed the suspect was reckless with the handling of the firearm, rather than intentionally shooting the victim,” said Lt. Darren Brockway of The Colony Police Department. “We still haven't spoken to the victim, so we're still unclear as to exactly what happened, but we don't believe it was intentional.
“It was either an accident or horseplay. We do know there wasn't an argument, but anytime someone handles a firearm they have to be careful. It was definitely a reckless act.”
Now, what's so hard about that? Were her rights violated? Was due process ignored?
No. When someone is responsible for a gun mishap, they should go to jail, just like this one did.
