15-year-old unintentionally shoots and kills 17-year-old friend with stolen gun

Three Phoenix, Arizona teens, a 15-year-old girl, a 16-year-old boy, and 17-year old Raymond Berryman broke into the house of one of Berryman's neighbors.
They stole several guns as well as a number of other items. While they were back home going through the stolen items the girl picked up one of the stolen handguns and began playing with it. Thinking the gun was not loaded, she pointed the gun at Berryman and pulled the trigger.
Berryman was shot in the chest. Paramedics found him laying in the middle of the street. He was taken to the hospital where he died of his injuries.
The girl is being held on homicide and burglary charges. The other boy will be charged with burglary.
Police did not indicate how the stolen guns were stored and whether or not they had been locked up.
