SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — A jury has convicted a Sioux Falls man in the accidental shooting death of another man.
Minnehaha County prosecutors say that David Randle Jr. was found guilty Friday of manslaughter, unauthorized ingestion of a controlled substance, and possession of marijuana. A sentencing date has not been set.
Authorities say the 21-year-old Randle was behaving recklessly with the AK-47 rifle before it accidentally discharged. Nineteen-year-old Mikael Ashame was struck by gunshot and died at a Sioux Falls hospital.
Witnesses say Randle had been drinking and using drugs before the accident.
Randle’s attorney could not be immediately reached for comment.
