Accidental shooting suspect charged with manslaughter
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) -- A man who police said accidentally shot and killed his friend in Pompano Beach, faced a judge Thursday.
Twenty-year-old Adiel Jaramillo was charged with one count of manslaughter. Investigators said he was drunk and waving his gun around at the victim's apartment, located along Southwest Fourth Avenue and Second place last Friday. Police said that's when he accidentally fired the weapon, killing 19-year-old Michael Cornelio.
Jaramillo turned himself in to Broward Sheriff's Office homicide detectives on Wednesday following public pleas from the victim's mother, Helen Cornelio, to surrender.
