Teen shot and killed taking photo of her friend holding a rifle

16-year-old Selena Lewis, of Maiden, North Carolina went with her friends to look at a Ruger .22-caliber rifle one of them was considering buying.

The rifle seller had left the gun in the back of a pick-up truck on his property so 21-year-old Christopher Webb could look at the gun. The seller wasn't home at the time.

Selena was taking a picture of Webb holding the gun when Webb unintentionally discharged the weapon. Selena was shot in the chest.

Selena was taken to a local hospital and died before she could be airlifted to a medical center in Charlotte.

Webb told police he didn't realize there was a magazine in the rifle.  The district attorney is reviewing the case.
