Pastor's daughter accidentally shot at Fla. church

— Authorities say the daughter of a pastor was accidentally shot in the head at a church in St. Petersburg.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office was called to the Grace Connection Church Sunday at about 12:24 p.m.

Investigators say Moises Zambrana was showing his gun to another church member interested in buying a firearm. Zambrana has a concealed weapons permit and reportedly took out the gun's magazine but did not know there was a bullet in the chamber.

The gun went off and fired through a wall, striking 20-year-old Hannah Kelley. She was critically injured and transported to Bayfront Medical Center.

No charges have been filed. The investigation is ongoing.
