Woman Accidentally Kills Herself With Gun She Bought In Case Of Ferguson Unrest
CNN is reporting that 26 year-old Becca Campbell fatally shot herself in the head with a gun she had purchased in preparation for unrest in Ferguson Missouri, as a Grand Jury readies to announce whether or night police officer Darren Wilson will be charged with a crime in the shooting death of Mike Brown, and unarmed black teenager.
The accidental discharge of the weapon happened after Campbell was waving the gun around in a moving car, yelling;
“We’re ready for Ferguson.”
The female victim, identified in a police report as Becca Campbell, 26, was a passenger in a car involved in an auto accident. Her 33-year-old boyfriend was driving, the sources told CNN.
The boyfriend, who wasn’t identified, told police that the couple had bought a gun because of fears of unrest related to the pending grand jury decision on the shooting of Michael Brown, the sources said.
He told investigators that as they drove late Friday night, the victim waved a gun, jokingly saying the couple were ready for Ferguson, the sources said.
He ducked to get out of the way of the gun and accidentally rear-ended another car. He said the accident caused the gun to go off and she was struck by a bullet in the head, the sources said.
The victim was rushed to a hospital but died.
