25-year-old Wael Ali was showing his friend, 63-year-old Raouf Sanad, his black semi-automatic handgun. The two where in the kitchen of the restaurant Sanad owns in Marietta, Georgia.
According to reports, Sanad pointed the handgun at Ali and pulled the trigger, thinking the safety was on. Ali was shot in the front of the neck and died of his injuries.
Sanad was arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter, pointing a gun at another person and reckless conduct.
A woman who was dining at a nearby bakery told reporters weapons shouldn't be in a public place. "Any time you have a weapon, you have the potential," she said.
Georgia law allows firearms to be carried into restaurants provided the owner does not prohibit it.
