TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ Deputies say a 15-year-old girl is in critical condition after a handgun she found in her home went off while her mother’s boyfriend tried to take it away from her.
Nailin Rodriguez was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital following the Thursday night shooting.
The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/zXOAoW ) reports the man walked into the bedroom and saw the teen playing with the gun.
