Shooting Instructor Killed by 9-Year-Old Student with Uzi
An Arizona shooting instructor has died after being shot by a 9 year-old student.
Charles Vacca was standing next to the 9 year-old girl when she pulled the trigger on an uzi machine gun.
The recoil sent the weapon over her head, and Vacca was shot.
He was airlifted to a hospital, but died later on Monday.
The Bullets and Burgers range operator says nothing like this has ever happened before.
As a result of the tragedy, the range has changed it policy.
In the future, shooters will have to be at least 5' tall, or be at least 12 years old.
