NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A man who authorities say accidentally shot another man to death has been arrested.

News outlets report 21-year-old Skyler Nicoulin was arrested Friday and charged with negligent homicide of a man that was either 19 or 20 years old. Authorities have not released the name of the victim.

New Orleans police said in a statement that responding officers found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim was taken to the hospital, where he died of his injuries.

Investigators later found that Nicoulin was handling a gun when it “accidentally discharged.”

Further details have not been released. It’s unclear if Nicoulin has a lawyer.
