Police say that a 16-year-old girl accidentally shot and killed her boyfriend at his Houston home.

Investigators say 19-year-old Jacob Lara and his girlfriend were apparently trying to make his handgun safe at around 12.20am on Friday when the weapon accidentally fired while she held it.

Lara was hit in the face. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the shooting will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.

Police say it appears that the gun accidentally discharged while Lara and his girlfriend were talking.
