This is one of the most tragically needless deaths we've ever heard of.

A 73-year-old woman was just shot and killed by police on Tuesday night during a training exercise aimed at showing how difficult it is for cops to know when to shoot.

Apparently, Mary Knowlton was participating in a "shoot/don't shoot" community event in Punta Gorda, Florida when she was randomly selected to pretend to be a bad guy facing off against police.

However, through some unlucky chain of events, the elderly librarian ended up getting shot multiple times with live ammo instead of the intended blank rounds.

Punta Gorda police Chief Tom Lewis issued a statement after Mary was "mistakenly struck with a live round," asking for prayers at this difficult time, saying:

We're a little shocked by his opinion on the matter.

It's been 94 days since 89 people were shot to death at a concert inside Paris' Bataclan theater, and now one man behind the show is speaking out about his controversial stance on gun control.

Eagles of Death Metal have already talked about their experience with the terrorist attack back in November, but frontman Jesse Hughes' latest solo interview reveals he is actually extremely pro-gun.

What truly awful news.

New York Knicks small forward Cleanthony Early is the latest high profile victim of gun violence after he was robbed and shot early Wednesday morning.

Apparently, the NBA player was leaving a strip club in Queens at around 4:15 a.m. when six masked men surrounded his Uber, robbed him and the woman he with, and shot him in the knee.

Luckily, the woman and driver were not injured and the 24-year-old basketball star is currently recuperating at Elmhurst Hospital, but there's no word yet on if or when he'll be able to play again.

It's also unclear why Cleanthony was targeted, but the attackers managed to steal his jewelry and gold teeth… so his wealth may have had something to do with it.

We're glad no one was killed, but we hope the Police are able to catch these terrible men.

Get well soon, Cleanthony.

This is just unbelievably tragic for everyone involved.

A small community in White Pine, Tennessee was rocked on Saturday when an 11-year-old boy shot and killed his 8-year-old neighbor.

Apparently, Makayla Dyer was playing around with some of the other neighborhood kids over the weekend when an older classmate of hers asked to see one of her puppies.

Witnesses say that Makayla playfully told the boy no as he had previously been a bully of hers, but that's when he pulled out his father's 12-gauge shotgun and shot her point blank.

The identity of the shooter has not been revealed, as he is a minor accused of a crime, but we do know that he's currently in custody and is being charged with 1st degree murder in juvenile court.

Our thoughts are with Makayla's family and friends at this devastating time.

Jeb Bush Says 'Stuff Happens' After Oregon Shooting — Says Gun Laws Don't Need To Change

Filed under: PolitikSad SadViolenceScary!Controversy

Probably not the best choice of words.

Jeb Bush just pissed a lot of people off.

On Friday, the presidential hopeful was speaking at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina. In the wake of Thursday's tragic mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, the conversation was focused on gun control and senseless acts of violence.

At one point, he was asked if prayers would be more effective if they were allowed in school before an attack like this happens instead of after.

That prompted him to say that the government shouldn't spring into action after tragedies like this because "stuff happens." No, you didn't read that wrong.

Take a look at his full response (below):
