A woman is facing manslaughter charges after she shot and killed her boyfriend as they posed for a picture in Texas.
Autumn King, 20, accidentally shot her boyfriend Eric Charles Allen, 26, two days before Christmas as they posed with a rifle for a Snapchat photo.
According to the affidavit, King and Allen, who lived in Pflugerville, had been dating for two years before the shooting.
They have a child together and lived with each other in the 12500 block of Rampart Drive, where the shooting happened around 12.30pm on December 23, police said.
'Autumn stated that she was holding a tan assault rifle and that Eric was holding Autumn’s cell phone because he was going to take a picture of her holding the assault rifle.'
King told officers she had the rifle pointed towards Allen and that the assault rifle 'went off'.
The affidavit said the bullet hit Allen, who was a father-of-four in the chest.
According to the report, King told investigators that she thought Allen was playing around and told him to get up.
However when she realized that he was bleeding from his nose and mouth, she tried to drag him out to a car but couldn’t.
King told police that she and Allen argued earlier that day in an interview after the shooting.
She said Allen left guns around the house regularly where kids could access them.
Police said there were two children at the house at the time of the incident.
'Autumn stated that she ran outside and screamed for help and then went back inside and called 911 from her cell phone', the affidavit said.
Allen was pronounced dead a few minutes after medics arrived.
The Travis County Medical Examiner ruled the cause of death was from a gunshot wound and the manner of death as homicide.
The couple were trying to pose up like infamous outlaws Bonnie and Clyde who were killed by cops at a police road block in 1934.
King said she picked up a black rifle and put it behind the couch, then grabbed another rifle.
Allen then asked if she wanted to take a picture with it, the affidavit said.'Autumn stated that she did not intend to pull the trigger and that she put her finger lightly on the trigger.'Autumn went on to say that she was trying to be like Bonnie and Clyde.
Autumn said that her dad always told her never touch a gun, 'I didn’t listen', the affidavit added.
Eric's sister LaQuisha Allen said: 'He did nothing but provide for his kids. He provided for his family if you wanted it he gave it to you, you didn’t have to ask multiple times if he’d seen that you needed it he had no problem giving it.'
'A 10-year-old and a nine-month-old got to watch their daddy die today, that’s the hardest thing in the world that you can see is your daddy laying on the floor dead,' she said.'They want to know what happened, it’s going to be hard for us to tell them'.
