A 24-year-old woman is dead after shooting herself at the New Albany Shooting Range this afternoon, a Franklin County sheriff's officer said.

The woman, who has not been identified, watched a first-time shooters video, then fired rounds with an instructor, Sgt. Bill Duffer said.

She was left alone and fired a few more rounds, he said. Then, according to video and witnesses, she pointed the 9 mm handgun at her chest and pulled the trigger.

She was taken to Mount Carmel St. Ann's hospital.

The call to the range, at 10299 Johnstown Rd., came about 12:30 p.m.

I have shot at this range a couple of times. A nice place that is frequented by quite a few LEO's from around the area on a regular basis. Seems like the woman meant to do herself harm. The safety film is required of all new shooters and anyone not a club member. Seems like she at least took the time to make sure she could "safely" kill herself without endangering others. I honestly feel sorry for her, the anguish she must have felt in order to commit such a premeditated act. I also feel for the ranges owners, they obviously did everything within their power to ensure safety on the range but will somehow be blamed for this I am sure.
