11-year-old unintentionally shoots and kills her 19-year-old stepfather

19-year-old Bryan Reno, of Cleveland County, North Carolina had just bought a handgun through a private sale. According to a news report:
On Friday evening, while his 35-year-old wife Pamela slept, Reno showed the gun to his 11-year-old stepdaughter. At one point, Reno removed the magazine slide from the firearm and handed the .380-caliber gun to her to examine.
"During the course of her looking at the firearm, it's apparent that she pulled the trigger of the firearm and it discharged," said the sheriff. "It just appears he failed to check the chamber to make sure there was not a bullet in the chamber, and it turned fatal."
Reno died at the scene from a gunshot would to the chest.
