17-year old Texas girl unintentionally shot to death in head

A 17-year old girl, Jessica Saldivar, was shot in the head and killed by a man in Pharr, Texas, in an apparent unintentional shooting.

From an article:

Eliezer Sanchez Jr., 19, was arraigned on a manslaughter charge Sunday afternoon for shooting Jessica Saldivar in the head about 5 a.m. Saturday at a house in the 6800 block of South Azul Lane. Municipal Judge Rodolfo “Rudy” Martinez set Sanchez’s bond at $50,000. 
Sanchez told police investigators that he had pulled the trigger of the .38-caliber revolver not knowing that it was loaded, according to the criminal complaint. Four witnesses provided sworn statements that the shooting was accidental. 
Saldivar was rushed to the hospital where she later died about 3 a.m. Sunday.
