Shooting Range Instructor Killed by Girl With Uzi

A shooting range instructor in Arizona was accidentally shot and killed by a girl who was learning how to shoot an Uzi, authorities said on Tuesday. Charles Vacca, 39, was teaching the nine-year-old how to use the automatic weapon on Monday morning and when she pulled the trigger the kickback caused the gun to lurch over her head, investigators said. Vacca was hit by a stray bullet and was airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital and was pronounced dead Monday night.
