26-year-old John Fisk Jr., of Columbus, Ohio had been out drinking with two friends when the trio went to an apartment to look at some guns. At about 2:30 a.m. one of the men was looking at a M-1 Garand Rifle. He didn't know the gun was loaded and pulled the trigger.
The weapon discharged and John was shot in the upper arm. He was taken to the hospital but died of his injuries about three hours later. Before he died, John told the responding officers and medical personnel that the shooting was unintentional.
No charges have been filed and the case has been forwarded to the prosecutor's office for review.
