A 17-year-old Washington County high school student died Saturday after firing a blank-shooting prop pistol used for a play.A prop gun? "Prop guns" should be water guns painted black, or anything not able to cause fatal injuries. This is all on the adult who allowed that prop to even enter the stage area.
Authorities say the Desert Hills student died from head injuries. The pistol was found in the student's hands shortly before the play "Oklahoma!" was scheduled to begin.
St. George Police Captain Bruce Graham says there were no bullets in the gun, but the gas in it has the same energy that a bullet does.
