Police in the United States are investigating after a nine-year-old girl accidentally shot her gun instructor in Arizona.
-
The accident happened at a shooting range while the instructor was teaching the girl how to shoot an Uzi machine gun, according to a police report.
-
Charles Vacca, 39, was standing next to the girl when he instructed her to shoot a single round.
-
Then he switched the gun to the fully automatic mode, and the recoil caused the gun to swing around and shoot him in the head.
-
Mr Vacca was taken to a hospital but died a short time later.
-
A manager at the firing range told NBC News that firearms training there can begin as young as eight years old.
-
Firearms instruction at other shooting ranges in the US, which has the world's highest per capita number of guns, can start as early as seven years old.
