The daughter of a Florida pastor is clinging to life Monday after accidentally getting shot in the head at her father's church.

WTSP-TV reports that 20-year-old Hannah Kelley was standing in the Grace Connection Church near St. Petersburg on Sunday when nearby in a closet a man was showing a gun to two young men. One of them was Kelley's boyfriend, who was interested in buying a gun.

Police say that although gun owner Moses Zambrana took the clip out of the gun, there was still a bullet in the chamber. The gun went off, firing through the wall and hitting Kelley.

She is listed in critical condition at Bayfront Medical Center.

This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.

"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.

Police say Zambrana has a permit to carry a gun and did not appear to break any laws, so no charges have been filed against him thus far.
