15 year old Utah girl shot by 16 year old friend

A 15 year year old girl was shot in the stomach by a 16 year old friend:
Police said a 16-year-old shot a 15-year-old in the abdomen.  Cops said the 16-year-old boy was showing off a gun and this appears to be an accident.
It was a startling discovery for neighbor Brad Blair. Just after 4 p.m., the victim showed up on  Blair’s doorstep.
“He was still awake and everything, but he was bleeding pretty good,” Blair said.
The victim was with a female friend.  They were trying to call 911.  Moments before, the teens were hanging out with a 16-year-old acquaintance outside the apartment building.
“It sounds like he tried to fire the gun a couple times, it wasn’t working but at some point it did discharge,” said Lt. Matt Elson of the West Valley City Police Department.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
