Girl Who Shot Gun Instructor Said Uzi Was Too Much for Her




PHOENIX — A 9-year-old girl who accidentally killed a shooting range instructor with an Uzi in northern Arizona said immediately after the shooting that she felt the gun was too much for her and had hurt her shoulder, according to police reports released on Tuesday.

Her family members were focused on the girl because they thought she was injured by the gun’s recoil and didn’t immediately realize instructor Charles Vacca had been shot until one of his colleagues ran over.
