News outlets report that the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office says in a news release that Shawn Perkins was a passenger in a car with the two teenage girls on Monday. Authorities say Perkins allowed the 15-year-old girl, who was sitting in the back, to handle his handgun. The weapon discharged, hitting the 16-year-old driver in the back.
What’s most striking about this is that charges have been filed.
One wonders what keeps this from being yet another “tragic accident” in which a “gun discharges” all on its ownsome. Inquiring minds want to know.
