ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a pastor's daughter who was accidentally shot in the head in a Florida church has died.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says 20-year-old Hannah Kelley died Saturday at a hospital. An autopsy is pending.


Kelley had been hospitalized since Sunday, when she was hit in the head by a bullet at her father's Grace Connection Church in St. Petersburg.

Investigators have said Moises Zambrana was showing his gun in a small closet to another church member interested in buying a firearm. Zambrana reportedly removed the magazine from the Ruger 9mm weapon but did not know that a bullet remained in the chamber. The gun went off, firing a bullet through a wall.

The sheriff's office says detectives are still investigating the shooting. No charges have been filed.
