12 Arizonans Killed in "Accidental" Shootings So Far This Year



There have been at least 12 people "accidentally" shot and killed in Arizona this year.

Just this week, 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. See the details on each of the 12 shootings below.
