A teenager accused of killing his pregnant 19 year-old girlfriend allegedly claimed he was just ‘playing around’ with a gun when it went off and shot her.

Gage Gillentine, 18, has been charged with murder after allegedly killing Klowie Moore, 19, on last Friday in Graham, Texas.

He could not keep his story straight with the police, telling them he was not in the room when the shooting happened, then saying he was in the bathroom, according to court documents.
