DOLAN SPRINGS, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a shooting instructor accidentally shot in the head by a 9-year-old girl has died.
Mohave County Sheriff's officials say 39-year-old Charles Vacca, of Lake Havasu City, died Monday after he was shot at the Last Stop shooting outdoor range in White Hills.
Sheriff's officials say Vacca was airlifted to the University Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
According to investigators, Vacca was standing next to the girl while he was instructing her how to use an automatic Uzi when the accident happened. Authorities say the girl pulled the trigger and the recoil sent the gun over her head and the victim was shot.
Deputies say the girl was at the shooting range with her parents.
