The daughter of a pastor is in critical condition after being accidentally shot in the back of the head at a church in Florida.
Pastor Tim Kelley announced on Grace Connection Church’s Facebook page on Sunday that the prognosis for his daughter, 20-year-old Hannah Grace Kelley, was not good.
“Please pray the swelling to goes down in her brain,” he wrote.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office told WTSP that church member Moises Zambrana, who works as a security guard, was in a closet showing two other men the safety features on his 9mm handgun. Although Zambrana had removed the clip, he had failed to remove the round in the chamber. The gun went off and fired through a wall, striking Hannah Kelley in the back of the head.
“There’s a little concerned that, you know, it happened, but it was accidental,” church member Tony Diehl said. “I mean, nobody was intended — nobody came to shoot anybody. It just happened.”
Authorities say that Zambrana has a permit for the weapon and did not break any laws. No charges have been filed.

WATCH: Trump advisor trashes Dr. Fauci — while pushing coronavirus conspiracy theories
White House economic advisor Peter Navarro pushed several conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic as the administration attempts to deflect blame for America responding to coronavirus worse than any other developed country.
At one point in the interview, MSNBC's Ali Velshi had to ask, "What are you talking about?"
Navarro harshly criticized Dr. Tony Fauci, who is one of his colleagues in the administration.
And he tried to blame the "Chinese Communist Party" for the disease, saying "they spawned the virus, they hid virus, they sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationalists over here to seed and spread the virus before we knew."
‘Gaslighting on a massive scale’: Doctor warns Trump is lying us into a COVID disaster
On CNN Friday, Dr. Celine Grounder tore into President Donald Trump's ongoing falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic.
"No matter how many times public health officials, especially like Anthony Fauci, speak the truth, what does it do, Doctor, when the president continues to lie to the public in face of a public health crisis?" asked anchor Kate Bolduan.
"This is gaslighting on an enormous scale, and means until people eventually get sick or their family members get sick, the communities hit hard, they won't believe it, and then it will be too late," said Grounder. "The problem is there's a lag period from the time that somebody's infected and starts to develop symptoms a couple days later. We don't see people get severely sick and need to be hospitalized and in ICUs until a week into disease, and talking about probably one to two weeks of lag time from the time somebody's exposed at least before you start to see hospitalizations and then another couple weeks before you start to see deaths."
Katie Porter demands resignation of Trump small business chief for enabling ‘abuse’ of Covid-19 relief funds
California Congresswoman Katie Porter is demanding the resignation of the Trump administration's small business chief for enabling "abuse" and "waste" of coronavirus relief funds and refusing to comply with basic government oversight efforts.
Porter's call came after the Government Accountability Office (GAO) said in a report last week that it "encountered the most difficulty trying to obtain information from the Small Business Administration (SBA)" during the process of examining the Trump administration's handling of the $650 billion Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
