A 19-year-old driver was killed in Indiana when an assault-style rifle held by a passenger in the backseat went off. Annalysa McMillan died of a single gunshot wound to the back, CNN reports. Her death was ruled a homicide, CNN reports, and a 22-year-old passenger is being held on charges including reckless homicide. Police in Marion, about 70 miles north of Indianapolis, are still investigating the death last week; a minor collision with another vehicle followed.
"She was an encouraging, bubbly young lady who had a bright future and was heading in the right direction," said McMillan's pastor, who had recently written a recommendation letter for her, per Fox59. "The last text that she sent to her stepfather was that she loved him." (Read more assault rifles stories.)
