Two Teens Charged in Accidental Shooting Death
KANSAS CITY (AP) - Two teenagers are charged in what authorities say was an accidental shooting death of a Kansas City woman.
Jackson County authorities say 40-year-old Tina Castro died Tuesday after she was shot while sitting in a friend's car.
The two suspects, both 16, were playing with guns in the back seat of the car. Investigators say one of the teenagers, a relative of Castro's, touched a trigger of a gun and fired a single shot into her back. She died at the scene.
The Kansas City Star reports the teenagers have been charged as juveniles with involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.
