A west Florida pastor's daughter shot in the head by a man who brought a gun to church last week died at a hospital on Saturday, police said.

Hannah Kelley, 20, had been clinging to life after her injury in a freak accident last Sunday at Grace Connection Church in Lealman, which is led by her father, Tim Kelley.

Investigators say church member Moises Zambrana, a local security officer, was showing his Ruger 9mm to Kelley's boyfriend, Dustin Bueller, and another man in a church closet when the gun went off.

The single round tore through a wall and into the next room where it hit Kelley in the head, piercing her brain.

The three men had gathered in the closet after Bueller told Zambrana he was thinking of buying a gun after he turned 21 and Zambrana offered to show him his firearm, police said.

Zambrana told cops he had removed the weapon's clip but didn't realize there was a bullet in the chamber.

Kelley was pronounced dead at about 10:20 a.m. Saturday at Bayfront Medical Center, The Tampa Bay Times reported.

Zambrana has not been charged in the shooting, thought the sheriff's office said they are still investigating the incident.

In a statement on Saturday, the young St. Petersburg College student's family asked their community to forgive and pray for him.

"The family has forgiven Mr. Zambrana and would ask that others treat him with love and grace," the family said, according to the Times.

"The family would encourage mothers and fathers everywhere to hug their children a little tighter as you never know when it will be your last opportunity."

Family friend David Gibbs told the Times that Kelley was a "bubbly" social butterfly who had talked to Bueller, 20, about getting engaged soon.

A funeral was planned for Saturday.

"(The Kelleys) wants to think about the good that has come out of this," Gibbs told the Times. "Through this tragedy, Hannah was able to touch the world."
