Gun Range Says Uzi Release Form ‘Blown Away By The Wind’
[su_right_ad]The Arizona gun range where a 9-year-old girl was using an Uzi and shot and killed an instructor says it can’t find the release form that put the Uzi in her hands. They can’t find them, they claim, because it was “blown away by the wind.”
An investigative report released by the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office to TPM and other news outlets on Tuesday included descriptions by a sergeant and deputy who helped investigate the fatal Aug. 25 shooting at the Bullets and Burgers shooting range in White Hills, Arizona.
The victim, Charles Vacca, was wounded in the head when the 9-year-old girl he was instructing lost control of the Uzi when the gun recoiled. The investigators spoke with the girl’s family and the staff of the shooting range and attempted to get the release forms that had apparently been signed by the family, according to the report.
Sgt. J. Thien described his attempt to get the releases in the report:
