    CO - Premila Lal, 18, shot and killed in prank gone wrong, Longmont, 6 Sept 2013

    (CNN) -- The combination of a gun and a surprise gone wrong left a beloved 18-year-old track star dead, authorities in Longmont, Colorado, say.
    Premila Lal jumped out of a closet as a harmless joke to surprise a family friend, her father says. But the noise startled the friend, who grabbed a gun and shot her.

    Neither the state nor the defense team are saints, and there is usually plenty of incompetence to go around on both sides of the courtroom.

    Oii Vey.

    This breaks my heart. I feel sorry for Premilla's family, but I feel really sorry for the friend who shot her.

    My grandfather accidentally shot and killed his best friend when he was about five or six, he was haunted by it until the day he died.

    Hopefully this friend gets as much help as they need

    Sad. I have to think the victim and her family knew this young man had firearms. There is a picture of the guy getting out of a vehicle with a bunch of his friends to target practice so surely it was not a secret that he was a firearms enthusiast.

    Did she think he was paranoid because he had guns and that inspired the prank because it would be so funny to startle him and pretend to be an intruder? At 8 PM it was already dark too.
