PHOENIX, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- A 24-year-old woman died after being shot by a gun that discharged while she was hugging her boyfriend, Phoenix police said.

The woman, identified as Amanda Mosley, was taken to a hospital where she later died, KPHO-TV, Phoenix, reported Tuesday.

Phoenix Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Mosley was hugging her 18-year-old boyfriend, whose name was not reported, when a handgun he was removing from his waistband went off.

The man was removing the gun because it was causing Mosley discomfort, Thompson said.
