COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A woman who called 911 after a fatal shooting at an Easter party told a police dispatcher she shot a relative after she retrieved a gun to prove a point and it went off.
The woman told the dispatcher that she shot her niece, apparently referring to a 19-year-old woman killed during a fight that police say started over a skimpy Easter outfit — jean shorts and a green T-shirt tied up around her midriff.
"I just shot my niece," the woman says calmly at the beginning of the 33-second call released to The Associated Press on Tuesday.
"I didn't mean to do it," the woman said. "We was arguing, I tried to get my gun to prove a point, they got the rifle with me and it went off."
