LAWTON, Okla. (AP) – Police in Lawton say a soldier has been arrested in the apparent accidental shooting death of a fellow soldier stationed at Fort Sill.

The suspect was identified as Stephon Threat.

Capt. Craig Akard told reporters that 20-year-old Trevor Malik Hargrave was killed in the Saturday morning shooting at an apartment complex.

Akard says the suspect was arrested for first-degree manslaughter and possession of a firearm while intoxicated

Police say officers responding to reports of shots being fired stopped a car leaving the scene and found Hargrave wounded inside it with two other men who said they were taking him to a hospital. Hargrave later died.

Police say the men told them they were drinking, and the suspect was playing with the shotgun when it went off and hit Hargrave.
