Doctors say an Atlanta woman has "no expectancy of survival" after being shot accidentally by her sister in a car entering Miami Beach Sunday evening.


[Taniyria Holt] said the four women in the car were recording themselves on cellphones around 8:15 p.m. when Holt, in the 2019 Jaguar's front passenger seat, was handling a 9mm handgun owned by Ashley Burden, who was sitting directly behind Holt. Police say Holt described herself racking the gun, seeing a live round ejected.


"Thinking the firearm was free of live rounds, Ms. Holt said she went to pass the firearm over to her sister, Ms. Ponder (who was sitting behind the driver), but accidentally shot her," the [arrest] report said.

News report "she didn't think the gun was loaded"


The 4 universal rules of gun safety are:
  1. Treat all guns as if they are always loaded.
  2. Never let the muzzle point at anything that you are not willing to destroy.
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made the decision to shoot.
  4. Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

Shame they couldn't follow four simple rules

Where's the video of themselves? Curious to hear the convo leading up to it.

Probably just like this one that they released early.




The video of this woman shooting a fellow passenger is at yenisafak.com just google "woman shoots man in the head on accident video" and its at the top of the list.



The guy survived getting shot in the head. Guess the bullet didn't hit anything important.

who is old enough to remember Spyder Savitch, the famous skier whose girlfriend said he was killed cleaning his gun.

i was young but i think she shot him. cleaning his gun, duh!


He was shot by Caudine Longet, who was married to the singer Andy Williams, but living with Sabich.

She claimed that he was showing her how to shoot it.


"Prosecutors then moved to Plan B: using forensics to make their case. For one thing, they maintained, when Sabich was shot, he was at least six feet from Longet and facing away—definitely not consistent with someone showing his girlfriend how to fire a gun".
