Teen shot dead in prank

Teen shot dead in prank

An 18-year-old girl decided to jump out of a closet to scare a friend - and got shot dead instead.

Miss Premila Lal, a track star and a student in the US state of Colorado, was accidentally killed when she startled a friend who is a gun enthusiast.

Miss Lal was returning home with her 12-year-old cousin around 8pm last Friday when she decided to play a prank, reported NY Daily News.

Inside the house were her 15-year-old brother and her friend, 21-year-old Nerrek Daniel Galley.

Galley depicts himself as a gun enthusiast on his Facebook profile.

Miss Lal's father, Mr Pravenn Lal, said his daughter and her cousin hid in a closet and started making noises to scare the other two.

Galley then gave a gun to the teen as they proceeded to search the house, reported the Longmont Times-Call.

When Galley found the source of the sound, he fired into the closet, striking Miss Lal.
