BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) — Prosecutors say they don’t intend to file charges for the death of a man shot when a friend’s gun went off while the friend was cleaning it in an Omaha suburb.

The shooting occurred Oct. 5 at an apartment in Bellevue . Sarpy County authorities say the bullet from the semi-automatic handgun struck 26-year-old Eric Niedbalski in a shoulder. He died later that night at Nebraska Medical Center. He lived in Bellevue.

Chief Deputy Sarpy County Attorney Bonnie Moore said Wednesday that “it doesn’t appear that there was any criminal wrongdoing” on the part of 27-year-old Benjamin Morrison, who was cleaning the .45-caliber handgun
