KEYSTONE, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have charged a man in a fatal shooting in Keystone and identified the person who died.

The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office says 19-year-old Ty Scott of Keystone died from a single gunshot wound Wednesday. The incident happened at a residence.

Eighteen-year-old Rapid City resident Maxton Pfeiffer (FY’-fur) faces a first-degree manslaughter charge that carries a maximum punishment of life in prison. The Rapid City Journal reports his bond was set at $10,000 cash Friday.

Defense lawyer Dana Hanna says the shooting was accidental.

Police say a group of people were passing around a handgun when Pfeiffer allegedly picked up another handgun, pointed it at his companions, and the gun went off.
