40-year-old Tina Castro, of Kansas City, Missouri, was seated in the front seat of a friend's car. Two 16-year-old boys got into the back seat of the car. One of the boys was a relative of Tina's. The boys started playing with guns in the car.
News reports do not indicate if the guns were already in the car or if the boys brought the guns into the car. One of the boys unintentionally discharged one of the guns. The bullet struck Tina in the back.
Her friend pulled her out of the car. She died at the scene.
Police arrested the teens and charged them with involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.
