Negligent Discharge Claims Life of 17-Year-Old Girl In San Antonio As Person Attempted To Take Down Firearm

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS — In a tragic and completely avoidable incident in the early hours of Saturday in San Antonio, a 17-year-old girl lost her life in a negligent shooting. The incident unfolded just after midnight on the far West Side, specifically in the 11300 block of Woollcott Street.

According to the man handling the firearm, it discharged while he was attempting to dismantle it, leading to the teenager being struck in the stomach. EMS arrived to the scene and transported her to University Hospital.

Despite quick medical attention, the severity of her injuries led to her untimely death within an hour of her arrival at the hospital. The incident occurred in a bedroom, while other witnesses were situated in the kitchen of the same residence.

After the incident, these witnesses, along with the person involved in the shooting, were escorted to the police headquarters for questioning. As of now, no suspect has been identified, and the charges, if any, are yet to be disclosed.
