A Wisconsin man is in police custody after he admitted to accidentally shooting his 8-year-old daughter while giving a lesson on gun safety on Saturday. Michael Anthony Huddleston, 47, has been charged with first-degree reckless homicide for the death of his child Tiana Huddleston, People reports. He's also facing an additional felony possession of a firearm by a felon charge.  

According to the criminal complaint obtained by AP News, Huddleston made the decision to give his children a gun safety teaching after he heard sounds of the children playing around in the kitchen. He told police the safety on the .22 caliber handgun was on and there were no rounds inside prior to the incident. The father is said to have consumed at least a pint and a half of tequila just before the shooting took place.   

"The suspect was handling a firearm that discharged," a statement from Milwaukee police read, according to People. "The gunfire subsequently struck an 8-year-old girl. The victim arrived at a local hospital where she succumbed to her injuries."
