Police: Man accidentally shoots, kills acquaintance
MCDONOUGH, Ga. (AP) — Police say a Georgia man accidentally fatally shot an acquaintance.
Henry County police spokesman Capt. Joey Smith said in a Thursday statement that 24-year-old Ajai Darquez Allen was arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter.
Police tell news outlets that Allen was holding a handgun when it went off at a home. The bullet struck the victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
It’s unclear if Allen has a lawyer who could comment.
