KUSA - A 22-year-old woman was shot and killed Tuesday night in what police say was an accidental shooting.

Police responded to a report of shots fired at a home on the 10000 block of Elliot Circle in Federal Heights around 10:40 p.m.

According to Lt. Gary Toldness with the Federal Heights Police Department, Anastasia Adair was going to show off a semi-automatic AK-47 she had recently purchased.

She had gone into her house to get the gun to show to friends who were gathered in the garage of her home. As the victim was handing over the gun to her husband, it discharged and struck Adair.

She was transported to the hospital and pronounced dead.

Toldness said open containers of alcohol were found in the garage. The incident remains under investigation.
