The Arizona shooting range that was the site of the accidental shooting death of Charles Vacca, a firearms instructor, by a 9 year old student who lost control of a fully automatic Uzi submachine gun is shutting down.

According to KTAR,

PHOENIX — A gun range where an instructor was accidentally shot and killed by a child this week has closed indefinitely.

The range closed after the shooting but customers were still showing up two days later, according to a local news report.

The owner of the range defended his policies in a local interview which was reposted on Youtube.

Here is the original sheriff’s office report on the incident,

Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies responded to an accidental shooting at an outdoor shooting range Monday (8/25) morning. At about 10:00 a.m., deputies responded to the Last Stop business located at 20606 North Highway 93 in White Hills. Investigations determined a 9-year-old girl accidentally shot the instructor in the head. The instructor, a 39-year-old male victim was airlifted to a medical center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The girl was at the business with her parents.

The instructor identified as Charles Vacca, 39, of Lake Havasu City, did not survive his injuries.

Vacca was pronounced dead Monday (8/25) evening at the University Medical Center at 8:56 p.m.

Vacca was standing next to the girl while he was instructing her how to use to weapon when the accident happened. Further investigations determined the girl pulled the trigger on the automatic Uzi, the recoil sent the gun over her head and the victim was shot.

  1. Well lets just believe all the Socialist Media crap that’s put out and never question anything right? Patriots you should be aware there seems to be several problems with the shooting video that has been presented to the public. #1 The sound of this weapon is not in any way, the same to the sound of self contained cartridge. In fact the sound is exactly identical to a compressed air/nitrogen operated implement.
    #2 Video splicing seems to have taken place. one frame rocks were present next frame same rocks were not there anymore. Where did the go ? could it be heat vapor of some kind from the devise obscured the rocks? …unclear.
    #3 Video sound also indicates a charging knob (usually located on top of the mini-Uzi) was worked. However video shows this action didn’t occur at all !! Sound was apparently added.
    #4 Of course, the actual coup de grâce is not shown. Presumably to “Protect the public” but in today’s online availability and desire to upload such events in there entirety…..the lack of such footage on the net is highly suspect.
    Several Patriot investigators are reviewing this event and preforming more background information gathering. With limited resources available there finding several more strange facts concerning this case. Good place for you to start:

  2. Closes up shop AKA Cover-up the scene of the crime. How convenient. I remember this story. It’s called Sandy Hook. So are they gonna torch the area in order to prevent the people from investigating further?

    1. @NC I agree this story has smelled from day 1, I agree this is Sandy all over again. The area will be cleaned and turned into a parking lot to cover up any traces of their lie.

  3. Just like sandy hook, waco, ok city, the towers…etc etc

    Another ff that failed so hide/destroy all evidince. They have become so transparent these days.

  4. You know, the range itself looked suspect to me, it didn’t appear to have the ‘feel’ and look of a range that’s been there for a while, it ‘looked’ a little too neat, clean and polished. And based on how the berms appeared to have been bulldozed in, I suspect they will simply reverse the process and just bulldoze them over, covering up any evidence along the way. I say cover up – literally and figuratively.
