2008_08_25cal.jpgThe Queens DA's press release gives some more details about the 18-year-old who fatally shot his cousin. Felix Cruz allegedly "pointed the firearm at her and pulled the trigger. The gun made a clicking noise and nothing happened. The defendant allegedly then pulled the trigger again, this time discharging a bullet that struck [Veronica] Cruz in the face, killing her." The Queens DA's office adds that Cruz tried to get rid of the gun by throwing it out a window. The Daily News says Cruz did take out of the magazine, but forgot about the bullet in the chamber, when "playfully pointing" the gun. Cruz, who was charged with manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, and other counts, faces 15 years in prison if convicted.
