BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — A Battle Creek man whose girlfriend died on Valentine’s Day said he doesn’t know how his gun went off,:rolleyes: fatally wounding her.

“It was an accident. We were both caught off guard,” Deangelo Gaines said of the Sunday incident. “I don’t know.”

Gaines told 24 Hour News 8 on Tuesday that he had placed his .45-caliber handgun on his bed. He said he and his girlfriend, Kayla Babick, were lying on the bed together when the gun fired.:confused:

“I’m sitting there, just on my phone, and I hear a gunshot and she jumps up,” he said. “I’m like, my gun just went off.”

Babick was shot in the abdomen. She rushed downstairs, Gaines following her.

“I raced down there after her and she’s laying on the floor,” he remembered. “I pick her up. My mom gives me a towel. I put it on her wound. I’m rubbing her hair and I’m trying to talk to her and let her know that I was here. And I was like, ‘Can you hear me?’ And I felt her head nod a little bit. And she took a deep breath, and she just stopped breathing.”

Babick, 24, left behind two children. Her funeral is scheduled for Feb. 21.
