ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say the daughter of a pastor is still in critical condition at a Florida hospital, a day after being accidentally shot in the head at a St. Petersburg church.

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

Investigators say Moises Zambrana was showing his gun in a small closet to another church member interested in buying a firearm. Zambrana reportedly took out the magazine of the Ruger 9mm weapon 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 transported to Bayfront Medical Center and remained in critical condition Monday evening.

Deputies said Zambrana has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

No charges have been filed.
