A Texas woman shot and killed her boyfriend while posing for Snapchat with a gun. She was arrested even though she claimed the incident was an accident.

Autumn King, 20, from north Austin, was posing for a picture with a loaded rifle, while her 26-year-old boyfriend, Eric Allen, was taking the picture. The incident took place Dec. 23, in their home where two of Allen’s four children were also present. She was arrested Monday and faces charges of manslaughter, a second-degree felony. She was being held at Travis County Jail, the Associated Press (AP) reported.

According to an affidavit filed in court, King "had the rifle pointed towards Eric and that the assault rifle 'went off’." It further said, "Autumn said Eric dropped to the ground, but Autumn thought that Eric was 'playing,' and she told him to get up."

King also told police officials the gun belonged to Allen and he told her his guns were never loaded with bullets.

"She said, 'I didn't even pull it (the trigger), I just barely touched it' [and] she was trying to be like Bonnie and Clyde,” police reportedly said referring to a statement given by the accused.

After Allen fell to the ground and started bleeding, King first tried pulling him into a car, but then called 911 for help.

Police recovered a cell phone from the scene that had a 16-minute long video showing King and Allen arguing with each other, NBC affiliate television station KXAN reported.

"Based on what the video shows the argument between the two is about them both cheating on each other and justification for doing so," according to the affidavit.

According to the autopsy report, Allen died from a gunshot wound, and doctors called it a homicide.

Meanwhile, relatives of Allen created a GoFundMe page on Dec. 24 to meet funeral expenses. The page was still accepting donations and had gathered over $2,200 against the goal of $7,000 at the time of publishing this article.

His family wrote on the page: “Our beloved brother and family man life [sic] was tragically cut short he was shot and killed in his home. Erick was an amazing father to his four children two handsome little boys ages 9 months and 7 and two beautiful little girls ages 10 and 1.”

The case would be forwarded to the district attorney for review, AP reported.
