UPDATE: Hutchinson first lied to the police, claiming she found Steele shot at 69th and Prospect. She later came clean.
A witness told police that Hutchinson was talking about wanting to buy a gun, so he handed her one. The witness said she was waving the gun around, so he took it away from her. Minutes later, she had the gun again, pulled the slide back and it went off, hitting Steele.
Hutchinson loaded Steele into her car and rushed him to Research.
