Three roommates were comparing their handguns in the drive-through of a fast-food restaurant Tuesday when one of the pistols accidentally discharged, killing a woman in the front seat. Police identified the victim as Teaira Richard, 19, 10769 Alco St., Apt. 3.
Nicole Latrise Daniels, 20, who listed the same address as Richard, was booked into Parish Prison on one count of negligent homicide. Bond was set at $40,000.
The incident happened about 3:30 p.m. at the Popeyes at 10706 Florida St.
Daniels was in the back seat looking at a pistol one of the other two roommates had just bought, police spokesman Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said. Another girl handed Daniels a second gun, and as she was looking at both of them, one accidentally discharged.
Richard, who sat in the front passenger seat, was struck in the upper back, McKneely said.
The third roommate, whom McKneely refused to identify, drove Richard to Earl K. Long Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
Daniels needed one firearm lesson: This here lever looking thing is called a trigger. You put your finger on it when, and only when, you want to destroy something.
What better way to pass time in the drive-through than to break out the blasters and test the trigger pull.
So...file a suit against the gun maker. That's who is really at fault, right ?
I never heard of an armed robbery occurring at the drive in window.
At most, "someone accidentally discharged the gun." Why are guns treated as though they had minds of their own?
Idiots with guns.
oh really? I have.
Accident? How about cold blooded murder with a lame chaser story of an accidental discharge.
If everyone did that, you wouldn't see stories about things like this.
All guns should be considered to be loaded at all times.
Yeah, hurry before Bush signs this
Once upon a time there was grammar check and spell check.....what a sloppily written story.....
I hate it when those homocidal firearms decide to go on a rampage.
"I always get a kick out of the old Superman tv shows when the bad guy empties his pistol into Superman and then, when that fails, throws it at him."
Talk about stupid people.....you would think the criminal element in Metropolis would have learned that bullets bounce off Superman; yet every week, another group of mental midgets tried shooting him.....funny stuff.....
Ah youth. I can remember so many afternoon drives when we cruised around together and compared our guns...
What did seem strange about Superman was that he would stand there and let the shooter empty the rounds in the gun without flinching but ducked when the gun was thrown at him.
