Woman shot dead in sex game gone wrong
This is the first picture of a woman who died after her lover shot her during a risky sex game using a loaded gun.
The pair had been dating for only a fortnight but they had played with a gun during previous encounters, it has emerged.
Mr Shinault told the police he and Ms Williams were using a 9mm Taurus for "sexual gratification and arousal" at his home in Valrico, Florida.
According to graphic new details about the tragic night, Mr Shinault told detectives he was sitting on the edge of his bed with Paloma between his legs.
The brunette's back was facing a TV set on a desk.
Mr Shinault, who is being held for manslaughter, said Ms Williams first rubbed the weapon along his body.
Then he did the same to her.
When he held it to her chest he pulled the trigger and the gun went off.
Ms Williams fell and Mr Shinault yelled for his parents, who were downstairs. She died later in hospital.
Mr Shinault said Ms Williams had been rubbing her hand over the gun's slide and she "must have flipped the safety catch off".
But officers who examined the weapon found the safety button could not be easily manipulated by rubbing it, court files said.
Mr Shinault said he did not mean to shoot his girlfriend, The Tampa Bay Times reported.
He had snorted a small amount of methamphetamine about two hours earlier, according to the documents.
Ms Williams had taken fentanyl, Mr Shinault told police.
Investigators retrieved a 9mm projectile and bullet casing from the bedroom and found a hole in the TV set.
Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said: "Andrew Shinault shot a woman while engaging in an act of foreplay involving his registered hand gun.
"The woman, who was shot in the upper body, was transported to Brandon Regional Hospital where she later died."
