An attorney for the parents of a 9-year-old girl who accidentally killed an Arizona shooting range instructor with an Uzi said yesterday the family is devastated by the tragedy that occurred on a brief excursion during a vacation.

The statement came as investigators released police reports and 911 recordings involving the Aug. 25 shooting of instructor Charles Vacca at the Last Stop range in White Hills, Ariz., about 60 miles south of Las Vegas.

The police reports name the child’s parents as Alex Gen and Alison MacLachlan and don’t list the couple’s hometown.
