18-year-old Taylor Ann Kelly of South Carolina has been charged with involuntary manslaughter after accidentally fatally shooting a friend who asked her to help him test out his new Kevlar vest, Gawker reports.
According to police, the two had been hanging out in a friend’s garage with about ten other people when the victim, 26-year-old Blake Wardell, came up with the bright idea for Kelly to shoot him.
