A small farm town in the shadow of Picacho Peak was left in disbelief after what Pinal County Sheriff's Deputies are calling a tragic accident.
Investigators say a prank left 19-year-old Dina Dicochea dead.
According to deputies, Dicochea's boyfriend, 20-year-old Ramiro Delcid, shot her while the two were sitting in his company truck at Red Rock Feed Company just before 7 p.m. Monday.
Delcid told investigators that he thought he had taken all of the bullets out of his revolver when he aimed the gun at his girlfriend and pulled the trigger. Delcid admitted to detectives he was trying to scare her.
Reyna Soqui lives two doors down from Delcid.
"I'm sure it was an accident because he wouldn't do something like that. I have known Ramiro my whole life. He's been a great guy," said Soqui.
Soqui said Dicochea recently moved to Red Rock from Tucson and that the couple lived together. Although she never talked much with Delcid's girlfriend, she said the two seemed happy together.
"I know he loved her. They were doing good together," said Soqui.
Delcid's boss said he was a good young man and that had no idea he was carrying a gun.
ALWAYS assume a gun is loaded, and don’t point it at anything unless you intend to fire...
Col. Coopers gun safety rules:
1. All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)
3. Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of inadvertent discharges.
4. Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.
Pointing a gun at someone and pulling the trigger is not a prank.
Nothing says “I love you” like dry-firing a gun at someone.
Its not a tragic accident. Its gross stupidity. Either that he is lying and covering it up with this BS story.
Another liberal looney toon shooting. Yeah maybe they should outlaw guns....for liberals.
nope... involuntary manslaughter at least
“Its not a tragic accident. Its gross stupidity. Either that he is lying and covering it up with this BS story.”
Yep. And he should be at least be charged with negligent homicide.
you can tell someone who is trained on a gun, their finger is straight OFF the trigger
I remember watching a video of a woman who accidentally shoots a gun- no one told her NOT to touch the trigger, to her a trigger was where your finger goes
At the very least he should be castrated should he be allowed to remain free.
We should make every effort to prevent him from promulgating the “stupid gene”...
That is nearly verbatim of what my father taught me since I was a little boy, and since then I have taught my four children the same.
Pretty damn hard to hurt someone when the rules are followed.
In addition to the rules.....
As with many practices that require specific attention to safety and details, behavior should become habitual. For habits to form, training, practice and repetition is necessary.
Think about all the little things we do when we simply change lanes on the highway. Check the mirror, turn on the blinker, check the mirror again to be sure, then merge into another lane. Think of all the things we do habitually when you get out of a vehicle or leave the house/office. Keys, wallet, phone, ballistic producing self protection machinery, etc. (I call this my patdown). Do you check for toilet paper before you sit on the toilet?
If you have ever been on a gun range, you’ll notice that most people have a routine when handling a firearm. This is not by chance. IT’S HABIT for most. It’s a good habit and it is from knowledge, experience, practice and repetition. I expect most FReepers that handle weapons know this. But it can’t be stated enough.
He should go up for manslaughter.
What a fool.
I agree and sure hope he gets punished to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Let the idiot play Russian Roulette with a full cylinder.
Again, why should we assume this was an accident?
BS Meter rocketed off the machine and put a hole in the wall.
