Saturday night, 13-year-old Kasey Canada went with her 23-year-old babysitter to a barbecue at a home in Canaveral Groves, Florida. The host of the party, 25-year-old Justin Adkins, was in the bedroom showing a friend his .380-caliber handgun when the gun unintentionally discharged. The bullet went through the wall and into the kitchen where it struck Kasey in the back. The girl was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The State Attorney's Office will decided whether or not to charge Adkins in the shooting. Grief counselors will be at Kasey's middle school today to talk to students.
