SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls man is charged with first-degree manslaughter after police say he fatally shot his friend.

The shooting happened about 9 p.m. Monday in Sioux Falls. Police say the 18-year-old suspect, Stasek Alexandr Stefanyuk, was hanging out with friends and showing them a shotgun he had recently acquired when a round discharged and hit Darius Jae Tiger in the back. The 21-year-old died at the scene.

The Argus Leader reports Lt. Mike Colwill says investigators determined the gun discharged because of reckless behavior. Colwill says a controlled substance was also found in the house.

In court, Stefanyuk received a $100,000 bond after his application for a court-appointed attorney was accepted.
