“BROOKSVILLE — Katherine Lynn Bryan
grew up in New Port Richey, the youngest
in a tight-knit group of four siblings. She
recently got married and became
Katherine Hoover. At the age of 25, she
was five months pregnant. The new baby
was going to be her second son.
Instead, a tragic gun accident at a friend’s
house left the young mother and her
unborn child dead Sunday
She was shot in the head Saturday evening while being shown a gun at a friend’s house in Brooksville, authorities said.
She and her husband, Carson Hoover, had gone to visit friends at 20079 Suncrest Drive in northwest Brooksville, just outside the city limits.
Sometime around 6:45 p.m. inside the house, William DeHayes was showing the Hoovers some of his guns, including a .22-caliber revolver. The gun accidentally fired and shot Katherine Hoover in the head, according to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.
Hoover was rushed to Bayfront Health Brooksville and then airlifted to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point.
Her unborn child could not be saved. Shortly before 8 p.m. Saturday, physicians removed the 5-month-old fetus from his dying mother in a last-ditch attempt to save him. But he was pronounced dead just after 8:30 p.m.”
This shit happens all the time.
