18-year-old Mandi Viator of New Iberia, Louisiana was shot and killed when her fiance unintentionally discharged a gun. The couple was living in a camper at a KOC campground. Mandi's finance was moving a gun when he unintentionally discharged it. The bullet went through a wall, a dresser, and a shower curtain before striking Mandi. Paramedics were quick to arrive on the scene but were unable to revive Mandi. The Sheriff's department has classified this as an accidental shooting but says the D.A. will be reviewing the case to see if any charges for negligence or illegal use of a firearm are warranted.
