Indiana teen fatally shot while driving, officials say her passenger is responsible
MARION, IN – An Indiana teen was shot and killed while driving, when her backseat passenger shot her with an AR-15 style rifle.
CNN reports that 19-year-old Annalysa McMillan was on a road about 70 miles north of Indianapolis, when a gun discharged in the passenger seat behind her.
According to the Marion Police Department, McMillan's injuries hindered her ability to control her vehicle, leading to a minor accident involving another driver.
McMillian was unresponsive by the time first-responders arrived and, despite resuscitation efforts, she was pronounced dead at Marion General Hospital.
Officials say the passenger responsible for shooting McMillian is 22-year-old Austin Smith.
Smith is being held on bond on charges of reckless homicide and criminal recklessness while armed with a deadly weapon.
McMillan celebrated her 19th birthday five days before her death.
