LEALMAN, Fla. -- A Bay area church congregation is rallying together in prayer for their pastor's daughter. The young woman was accidentally shot Sunday at Grace Connection Church along 56th Avenue North in unincorporated St. Petersburg.

Hannah Kelley, 20 years old, remains in critical condition at Bayfront Medical Center. According to officials with the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, church member Moises Zambrana was showing a 9mm handgun to two young men in a closet near the recreational area. Detectives say one of the men, who is Kelley's boyfriend, was interested in getting a gun. While Zambrana was showing him the safety features, authorities say the gun went off. The bullet went through the wall, and hit Kelley in the head.

According to authorities, Zambrana did take out the magazine clip, but a bullet was still in the chamber.

Church members are now praying that Kelley will pull through.

"There is a big level of concern 'cause she may or may not survive. But we're all praying for her and, right now, I guess that's the best we can do," said church member Tony Diehl.

Authorities say Zambrana does have a permit to carry his gun and did not break any laws. So far, no charges have been filed.
