MONTGOMERY, Ala. – An Alabama teenager was playing with a gun when he shot and killed a 13-year-old girl at a Montgomery park, the victim’s mother said.

According to the Montgomery Advertiser, Ashley Lee said Andie Dollerson, 17, was showing the gun to her twin daughters at Oak Park on Monday afternoon when he pulled out the magazine and aimed the weapon at one of the girls, Ceyeria Lee. A bullet that remained in the chamber struck Ceyeria in the heart, killing her, her mother said.

“He thought he was being cool,” Ashley Lee said of Dollerson, whose infant son is the twins’ nephew, at a vigil Wednesday, the Advertiser reported.

Montgomery police arrested Dollerson on a manslaughter charge, according to WSFA. He remains in the Montgomery County Detention Facility, authorities said.
