Student dies after shooting accident By Associated Press December 20, 2002 LOVELAND, COLORADO — An 18-year-old high school student died after an accident while target shooting with friends, authorities said. Randal Williams Jr. was with three other students shooting into a hillside in the Carter Lake area on Wednesday, Larimer County sheriff's spokeswoman Eloise Campanella said. Witnesses told deputies that Williams fumbled his .22-caliber handgun, causing it to discharge about 2:15 p.m. Williams suffered a gunshot wound to the chest. He was taken to McKee Medical Center in Loveland, where he died in surgery at 3:30 p.m. [url]http://www.dailycamera.com/bdc/state_news/article/0,1713,BDC_2419_1622614,00.html[/url]

"Fumbled"? I REALLY hope the kid wasn't twirling it around his trigger finger.

Are the high school kids already on Christmas vacation there? My high schoolers don't get out until almost 4pm. Sounds like another skipping school tragedy with no parental supervision.

What is with mentioning he is a high school student? Did this happen at school? Did they mention what school he (apparently didn't) attend? Another liberal label to tug at the heartstrings of the Million Mom marchers saying ..."Guns are bad, mmm'kay?"

I don't think so. 18-year-olds should not need parental supervision or a parent on hand to tell them not to point the gun at themselves while pulling the trigger.
