GULFPORT, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a Florida man fatally shot his twin brother while they were joking around in an SUV.
Jail records show 23-year-old Thomas Parkinson-Freeman was arrested early Monday and charged with manslaughter.
Police say Parkinson-Freeman and his brother, Mathias, were sitting in the parked vehicle at their Gulfport home Sunday evening.
Investigators say the brothers and a friend were talking and joking when Mathias pulled out a handgun and pointed it at his brother.
Police say Thomas responded by pulling out his own handgun, which fired, striking Mathias in the face.
Parkinson-Freeman was released Monday on $30,000 bond.
