Family members said Lal and Galley were best friends and Lal was hiding in a closet and jumped out to scare Galley and he shot her after being startled.

The closet opened and I think she jumped and screamed and he thought it was an intruder inside the closet, so that when he pulled the trigger,” Premila Lal’s father Praveen Lal said.

Nerrek Galley, from Utah, is currently being held in Boulder County Jail on several charges including reckless endangerment.

Premila Lal was a high school track star. Her parents are heartbroken over the loss of their daughter.

“My life ended so suddenly and I think it’s going to take a few more days for us to really, you know, comprehend she’s gone,” Praveen Lal said.

Despite his sadness Praveen Lal said he feels no anger towards Nerrek Galley.

“We lost a daughter, so we don’t want anybody else to lose their son, you know, especially when it was accident,” he said.
