BEXAR COUNTY, Texas -- A 36-year-old woman learning how to shoot a rifle was accidentally shot and killed Wednesday afternoon.
Felicity Perez was with her husband at a friend's home on Trainer Hale Road near Cibolo when the shooting occurred. Detectives said the man teaching Perez how to shoot accidentally discharged the rifle, striking the woman in the stomach. She was pronounced dead at the scene, investigators said.
"We have no facts to support criminal wrongdoing or anything like that," Bexar County Sheriff's Sgt. Jose Trevino said. "As far as right now, what we have is accidental."
Detectives confiscated the rifle and said the case would likely be up to a grand jury to see if charges would be filed.
