BRAHAM, Minn. - An 11-year-old girl is hospitalized after authorities say her father accidentally shot her in the head in east-central Minnesota.
Pine County Sheriff Robin Cole says the man was doing target practice with a .22-caliber pistol outside his home near Braham (bram) when the gun jammed.
Cole says the man brought the gun inside the house and was trying to fix it when it went off Thursday evening, shooting his daughter in the head from across the room. The man had been in the living room while the daughter was seated at the kitchen table.

You don't always have to pull the trigger. I hate to say that out loud, but it is honest. I bought a Glock and quickly sold it off. Every time you racked the slide manually it would fire. I sold it to a friend for a song with the understanding that they had to get it fixed.
Remington has also had a few recalls lately for their guns going off at inapropriate times.
We can not say the guy intentionally pulled the trigger. We can call him an idiot all day though.edit on 23-4-2011 by MikeNice81 because: (no reason given)
