A Pinal County man tried to "scare" his girlfriend by pointing a gun at her and pulling the trigger.

There was a bullet in that gun, and the Pinal County Sheriff's Office says 20-year-old Ramiro Delcid accidentally shot his girlfriend right in the chest, killing her.

Delcid was sitting in his company work truck with his girlfriend Monday evening at a feed-supply company in Red Rock, which is between Eloy and Marana along Interstate 10.

He'd unloaded his .38-caliber pistol and planned to pull the trigger just to "scare" his girlfriend, but there still was one bullet in there.

His 19-year-old girlfriend, whose name wasn't released, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Delcid was booked into jail on a charge of negligent homicide.
