RENO, Nev. (AP) - Reno police say a local man has been arrested in the apparently accidental shooting of another man in a hotel room.

Police say detectives determined that 23-yar-old Deandre Richie was handing the firearm early Saturday morning when it discharged, fatally wounding the victim in the chest.

Police also say that although there was no altercation or malicious intent by Richie to shoot the victim, he was arrested on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter as well as possession of a stolen firearm and carrying a concealed weapon.

Richie remains jailed and it’s not immediately known whether he has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.

The victim’s identity was not released.
