16-year-old Selena Lewis of Maiden, North Carolina died on Sunday after being shot in the chest by 21-year-old Christopher Webb when he accidentally fired the gun while posing for a picture. Lewis, along with other friends, were in Newton looking at a rifle that Webb was hoping to purchase when the incident occurred.

The rifle seller had left the gun in the back of a pick-up truck on his property for Webb to look at, but he wasn’t home at the time of the shooting. Lewis was taking a picture of Webb with the green and black Ruger 22 caliber when he accidentally pulled the trigger.
