A 23-year-old Burnsville man was charged Monday of manslaughter associated with the fatal death of his friend last December, the Star Tribune reported.
Kyl Alan Dague was charged with second degree manslaughter and reckless discharge of a firearm. His bail is set at $150,000 without conditions and $25,000 with conditions, the Star Tribune said
Dague and his friend Justin James Schauer of savage were reportedly playing a game in which they would catch the ejected bullet after pulling back the slide of a handgun when Schauer, 22, was shot in the forehead, the Pioneer Press said.
When Dague called 911 he told police that he had not been looking when the gun when off and thought that Schauer must have shot himself with the weapon. However, a witness said Dague had pulled the trigger when Shauer was shot, the Pioneer Press reported.
In addition, police found a "dominant amount of DNA match to Dague on the gun and no match to Schauer, reported the Pioneer Press.
