Houston Girl (16) Accidentally Shoot And Kill Boyfriend (19)


A 16-year-old girl accidentally shot and killed her boyfriend at his Houston home, police said.

Jacob Lara, 19, and his girlfriend were apparently trying to make his handgun safe at around 12:20am Friday when the weapon accidentally fired while she held it, according to investigators.

Lara was hit in the face. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the shooting will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.

It appears that the gun accidentally discharged while Lara and his girlfriend were talking, authorities said.


It took place while she attempted latching the gun's safety lock.

'I don't think these individuals had experience with guns and as far as we can tell, there is no evidence there was any argument any fighting of any kind,' authorities said.
