Gun teacher killed suffered single shot to head

CREATED Aug 29, 2014

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The coroner in Las Vegas says the Arizona firearms instructor who died in an Uzi shooting by a 9-year-old girl suffered a single gunshot to the head.

Clark County Coroner Mike Murphy told The Associated Press on Thursday that it will take several weeks for blood-toxicology test results to be complete, and authorities were still investigating the shooting.

The coroner said Thursday that an official cause of death was pending for 39-year-old Charles Joseph Vacca Jr. of Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
