News about the death of Aaron Sinegal, 17, spread like wildfire among Chapin High School students Saturday night. Many students said they heard about it through cell phone text messages. Others said they found out by word-of-mouth at the junior-senior prom.
El Paso police said that after showing a semi-automatic handgun to friends at his home, Sinegal went into another room.
His friends then heard a single gunshot and found Aaron on the floor, bleeding from a wound to the head.
According to police, the gun did not have a magazine inserted, but a gun of that type can still be fired without it.
While autopsy results are still not in, investigators said physical evidence along with witness accounts indicate it was an accident and not a suicide. Police said the bullet struck him in the head. The incident happened around 4:20 p.m. Saturday at 4717 Rolling Stone Avenue.
Sinegal was rushed to William Beaumont Army Medical Center where he died from his injuries.
More than 200 people gathered at the Chapin High School baseball field for a candlelight vigil. The boy's father, Reverend Eddie Sinegal conducted a small service. Friends, family and teachers were sobbing as they held up their candles during prayer.
The student organized vigil was announced through cell phone text messages.
Sinegal played on the school's baseball and football teams
