Stepfather unintentionally shoots and kills daughter thinking she was a burglar

29-year-old Daniel Meade, of Colorado Springs, Colorado shot his 14-year-old stepdaughter, Kiana O'Neil, about 6 a.m. as she was crawling though a window in their home. Meade thought the girl was a burglar.
Police were on the way to the home at the time of the shooting, having received a burglary in progress call. When they arrived they found Kiana with a gunshot wound.  She was taken to the hospital where she died soon afterwards.
Meade is a 10-year Army veteran who enlisted and ascended to the rank of sergeant first-class.  He is the recipient of a Bronze Star and is currently stationed at Fort Carson.
Police are still investigating and have not yet filed any charges.  Colorado has a "Make My Day" law that allows residents to use deadly force inside their homes if they believe an intruder is intent on harming them or committing a crime.

Thanks for the post. People who want to make their loved ones feel more safer may take help from the firearms to arm themselves and use them in case of any emergency. If you want to have the MA Gun License then all you need to do is simply go online and get information about licensing and purchase. But we need to take good care while handling this dangerous equipment.
