Sup Travellers?! A 16 year old girl who was honored as a hero in Indiana for saving two young lives with an act of heroism died on Sunday after one of her friends mistakenly shot her in the chest. CBS News reports that Aubrey Peters was by her her 20 year old friend, Jacob Travis McDaniel, when it occurred.

McDaniel was showing off his handgun to Peters and asked her if she wanted to hold it. She refused to hold the gun and after that he removed the magazine, pointed it at her, and pulled the trigger, apparently unaware of the fact that there was still a round in the chamber. Peters died. McDaniel has been charged with reckless homicide and pointing a firearm.

Peters may be considered a fallen hero to some. In 2010, when Peters was 13, she saved the lives of two little girls ages 4 and 7 who had fallen through the ice on a reservoir. She was honored by the Red Cross for her heroic act. 13 year old Peters told investigators she heard the screams of 7-year-old and 4-year-old sisters and alerted her grandparents and called 911. One girl reached shore safely, but Peters' grandfather pulled the other out and resuscitated her. 2-3 years later on the 8th of December 2013, Peters was shot dead in act of pure stupidity by her 20 year old friend. He didn't intentionally kill her but the law will always see beyond intentions when a life is lost. He should have never pointed the gun in her face in the first place. RIP Aubrey Peters. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
