A 19-year-old woman is dead after a gun in her purse fired one round into her body while she sat in her mini-van in front of a Starbucks on Power Inn Road. Police say that only one shot was fired and all signs point to the weapon going off by accident.
According to reports, investigators think she was reaching into her purse when the weapon went off. She was meeting with friends around noon at a coffee shop in front of the Sacramento County Family Courthouse. The young woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police are interviewing witnesses but do not expect any charges to be filed.
