The instructor, 39-year-old Charles Vacca, later died of his injuries. He suffered at least one gunshot wound to the head after the girl lost control of a 9mm Uzi that was put into "fully automatic" mode.

The tweet from the @NRAWomen handle was deleted without explanation a little over an hour after it was posted, according to the Huffington Post.

The story the tweet linked to lists using animal-shaped targets and exploding targets as ways to keep kids engaged at the shooting range.
