Shooting instructor Charles Vacca stands next to a 9-year-old girl at the Last Stop shooting range in White HillsBy Alexia Shurmur WHITE HILLS Ariz. (Reuters) - County law enforcement officials in Arizona said on Thursday no criminal charges are pending after a probe into a gun range incident in which a 9-year-old girl fatally shot her instructor with an Uzi, adding it was "being viewed as an industrial accident."
