    Deputies: Passenger playing with gun kills driver in Pompano Beach

    A passenger playing with his gun shot and killed the driver early Tuesday in Pompano Beach, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.
    The accused shooter, Carlos A. Martin of Fort Lauderdale, told deputies the gun fired on accident. He was held in Broward County's main jail on Tuesday without bond.
    Tiffany Littlepage, 21, of Fort Lauderdale, died at North Broward Medical Center in Deerfield Beach.
    ``His carelessness using or playing around with this firearm cost this girl her life,'' BSO spokeswoman Keyla Concepción said.
    Here is how investigators described what happened.
    The shooting happened about a half hour after midnight, BSO said. Littlepage drove. Her boyfriend, unaware that Martin had a gun, sat in the passenger seat.
    As they headed east on Atlantic Boulevard, Martin, 26, pulled a .22 caliber revolver from his left front pants pocket, according to an arrest report.
    Suddenly, the gun went off, firing one shot. It hit Littlepage in the back, the report said.
    Her boyfriend thought she was the victim of a drive-by shooting, BSO said. He took control of the car, first letting Littlepage and Martin out of the vehicle, then pulling it into the parking lot in the 100 block of West Atlantic Boulevard.
    Martin tossed the gun by a bus bench, BSO said. Then he helped Littlepage walk to the parking lot.
    A driver noticed the commotion on the side of the road and called 911.
    Deputies found Littlepage on the ground. Paramedics rushed her to the hospital, where she died.
    Deputies spoke with the boyfriend and Martin. At first, Martin tried to avoid saying what happened -- until deputies found bullets in Martin's pockets. He then confessed, BSO said.
    Martin is charged with one count of manslaughter, one count of tampering with evidence and one count of possession of a firearm while engaged in a felony.
    Deputies interviewed and released Littlepage's boyfriend.

    Plus they said it was a .22 cal REVOLVER... my guess is he was MORE than playing with it.. As in.. finger on the trigger!

    I love how the article says "suddenly the gun went off".. as in "SUDDENLY he PULLED THE TRIGGER"

    My guess, Carlos is a thug or thug wannabe with anger issues and not real bright. Carlos thought Tiffany dissed him and he felt compelled to pop a cap on her to restore his honor. When reality set in he and the boyfriend, probably fellow gangbanger, tried to cover up the crime but were caught by the witness with a cellphone. I could be wrong.

    Baldy.......I think your version is much closer to the truth than in the OP.

    Hopefully Carlos won't get much time and maybe someone can bus' a cap in him soon...

    Stupid Carlos just started a gang war with the family of the dead girl.
    The only winner here was Darwin.

    Think so?


    :upeyes:

    My 12 yr old writes like this author does. She doesn't know better. Someone at the MyMammy Herald SHOULD!

    This is gonna be like the early 70's when every news reporter would say, "Thirteen persons were hurt in the accident." Ugh.

    I thought .22's couldn't kill unless it was a perfect shot through the eye socket.

    :( Man that's aweful, poor girl.
