City police are investigating an apparent accidental shooting that killed a cadet. The Lebanon Daily Record reports Russell Bragg, 24, died on Wednesday morning after being shot in the leg.They're not sure. It was only an accident, which in gun-friendly Missouri is certainly never a crime.
Police said Bragg's friend and fellow cadet was taking apart a gun on the balcony of Bragg's apartment Tuesday night when he bent down to pick up something and a bullet fired. The round traveled through the victim's leg, then into his stomach and spine area.
Police haven’t said whether they’ll recommend the friend be charged with a crime.
