Man in fight with teens gets his gun, shoots and kills wife by mistake

24-year-old Breonna Roberts of Happy Camp, California was in a bar with friends when they discovered her truck had been stolen. She called her husband, 30-year-old James Roberts, for help and they went in search of the truck. They found the truck abandoned about a mile away but decided to keep driving looking for who might have stolen the truck. They came upon a group of teenagers and confronted them.
While Breonna got into a physical altercation with one of the teens, her husband went and got a gun from his truck.

James retrieved a Saiga semi-automatic .223-caliber assault rifle.

At some point during the fight James fired the gun and unintentionally shot and killed his wife Breonna.
James faces charges of involuntary manslaughter, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of discharging a firearm in a grossly negligent manner and one count of possessing an assault weapon.
He has pleaded not guilty but remains in jail on $250,000 bail.
Ohh shoot.
