FL: Daughter Shot as Mistaken Intruder

Campbell omitted that fact because he was asleep when his wife shot Doby, mistaking her for an intruder, police said on Wednesday. He didn't realize what happened until his wife — a 911 dispatcher with the Osceola County Sheriff's Office – explained it to him, according to authorities.

It was too late. Doby was taken to a local hospital, where she later died. Her death is being characterized by St. Cloud Police as an "accidental shooting," according to Sgt. Denise Roberts. Sherry Campbell, 45, fired one fatal shot. She has not been arrested on any criminal charges.

This case really should be getting a lot more attention in the firearm community and firearm press, as it is so illustrative of the gravity of the Four Golden Rules.
'Know Your Target' is an absolute must, just as are the others; There is zero excuse for firing at an unidentified target, and a failure to properly identify what one is shooting at should never be considered as an 'accident.'
This is a clear case of Criminally Negligent Homicide, and should be prosecuted as such.
