was in Felix's room talking on his cell phone when Felix pulled
a 12-gauge shotgun from underneath his bed and pointed it at the
cell phone. While pointing it at the cell phone, Felix worked
the pump action of the shotgun once so that the person on the

discharged once fatally striking Eric in the face.
