Memorial set for young woman who died after she was shot at church

PINELLAS PARK — The public is invited to attend a memorial service to honor the life of Hannah Kelley, the young woman who died Saturday, a week after she was shot in the head at her father's church.

The service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Calvary Chapel, 8900 U.S. 19 N.

Kelley, 20, of St. Petersburg, was shot Feb. 12 in a freak accident at Grace Connection Church, 4017 56th Ave. N. A fellow parishioner, Moises Zambrana, 48, was showing a gun to Kelley's fiance in a closet when the weapon went off. Zambrana had removed the gun's magazine, but forgot there was a round still in the chamber. The bullet tore through a wall and pierced Kelley's brain.

Kelley, whose father is a pastor at the church, died Saturday at Bayfront Medical Center.

The Pinellas County's Sheriff's Office is conducting a death investigation. No charges have been filed.

The memorial service also will be live-streamed from the church's website. Visit for more information.
