Jahiem Burns was in court Friday afternoon on an involuntary manslaughter charge.
Back on November 2, Burns called officers to his apartment near Gibson and San Mateo to report a shooting.
When they got to his apartment, they reportedly found Zackary Lewis dead in the kitchen.
Police alleged Burns said the two were playing a video game when Lewis grabbed his gun and pointed it at Burns. The two began to wrestle. Burns reportedly told police this was a common thing they did, and the gun went off and shot Lewis in the head. The shooting killed Lewis.
