A Louisiana teenager is accused of accidentally firing a gun inside of his home on Bubba Street, in Plaquemine, on Thursday afternoon. According to the Daily Mail, the bullet passed through the family’s dog and into his 67-year-old grandmother, who died immediately.
The teen, identified as Blaise Horton, phoned 9-1-1 to report the incident – though his own description of what happened indicates that the shooting, which claimed the life of Kathleen DuPont Fulton, was accidental, Horton was arrested for negligent homicide. According to reports, Horton had removed the magazine from the handgun and then pulled the trigger, believing that the gun was empty.
The dog, believed to be an adopted great Pyrenees, survived the gunshot and was taken to an emergency veterinarian for surgery.

Did you know that if you want to get updates from a Facebook page, you need to do more than “like” it? To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”
