(Newser) – A Florida pastor's daughter is in critical condition after being accidentally shot in the head after church services yesterday. Church member Moises Zambrana was showing a 9mm handgun to two other men in a closet (ostensibly for safety?) at Grace Connection Church. But it accidentally went off as Zambrana attempted to demonstrate ... the safety features. The bullet went through a wall and hit Hannah Kelley, 20, in the head, WTSP reports.

One of the men looking at the gun was Kelley's boyfriend; detectives say he was interested in getting his own gun. No charges have been filed against Zambrana, who has a gun carrying permit; authorities say he did not do anything illegal. Zambrana had apparently removed the gun's clip, but a bullet remained in the chamber.
