*BEXAR COUNTY, Texas -- *A 36-year-old woman learning how to shoot a rifle was
accidentally shot and killed Wednesday afternoon. Felicity Perez was with
her husband at a friend's home on Trainer Hale Road near Cibolo when the
shooting occurred. Detectives said the man teaching Perez how to shoot
accidentally discharged the rifle, striking the woman in the stomach. She was
pronounced dead at the scene, investigators said." We have no facts to support
criminal wrongdoing or anything like that," Bexar County Sheriff's Sgt. Jose
Trevino said. "As far as right now, what we have is accidental. "Detectives
confiscated the rifle and said the case would likely be up to a grand jury to
see if charges would be filed.
Slightly more info:
Felicity Perez wanted to learn about guns, and tragically, it killed her.
Perez, 36, was shot and killed Wednesday afternoon in east Bexar County.
At about 1 p.m., a friend of Perez and her husband were target practicing and
teaching Perez how to shoot.
The friend, who neighbors say is a highly decorated Vietnam veteran and an avid
gun collector, was loading a high-powered rifle.
They had been shooting a .22 and were about to teach Perez about higher caliber
guns when the friend loaded the last round into the rifle, and deputies say the
men told them the rifle just went off.
"The gentleman had loaded the ammo and he was putting it into the rifle.
Apparently something happened that caused the rifle to discharge several times
in a row. And as he was stepping back apparently the barrel of the rifle came
down in her direction and one of the rounds that had discharged, struck her,"
Lt. Robert Talbert said.
Both men were taken to the sheriff's office to give their statements, but
deputies say it appears this was just a sad accident.
At this time, it doesn't appear there will be any charges filed, but the
evidence will be given to the district attorney.
