Teen unintentionally shot and killed while playing prank on friend

18-year-old Premila Lal, of Longmont, Colorado was with her 12-year-old cousin when they decided to play a prank on her brother, Praveen, and her friend, 21-year-old Nerrek Galley. Premila and her cousin sneaked into the house where Galley was staying, hid in the closet and made noises to scare Galley and Premila's brother.

According to news reports, when they heard the noises Galley gave Praveen a handgun and he took another gun and the pair began to search the house. Premila jumped out of the closet startling Galley, who shot her.

Galley and others rushed Premila to the hospital. Galley carried her into the emergency room. Premila died a short time later.

Galley has been arrested and charged with child abuse, reckless endangerment and permitting a juvenile to have a fiream. None of these charges are directly related to the shooting. Police are still deciding whether or not to charge Galley in Premila's death.
