A Grosse Pointe North student has died after being accidentally shot at a Detroit home, according to a report on myfoxdetroit.com.

Fox 2 reports that the 16-year-old junior and Harper Woods resident was at a party early Sunday morning when a 19-year-old accidentally shot her while showing off a gun.

The 19-year-old also shot himself in the finger.

"I couldn't believe it because she (was) a good kid, (went) to school, she didn't get into (any) trouble, none of that, just hanging (around) with the wrong crowd," Ejuan Barnett, the 16-year-old’s father, told the television station.

Grosse Pointe North offered counseling services to students on Monday.
