16 year old Indiana girl shot by young man showing guns to friends

A 16 year old Indiana girl is dead after a friend thought he had unloaded the gun he was showing to friends:
According to the affidavit, McDaniel was showing Peters and the two other men a shotgun and a handgun. Dajuan Williams, one of the men, told police that "McDaniel tried to get Aubrey to hold the gun, but she didn't want to."
At that point, Williams told police, McDaniel ejected the magazine from the gun, pointed the weapon at Peters, took the safety off and pulled the trigger.
McDaniel apparently thought the gun was empty, the affidavit said, but when he pulled the trigger, a round fired.
"Aubrey clutched her chest and said, 'What just happened?' " the affidavit said. Williams told police that while he attempted to help Peters, McDaniel gave the men a story to tell police.
"McDaniel then stated, 'The story is the gun fell off the table and went off,' " the affidavit said.
There are really no "accidental" shootings.
