6. Troy man is charged in roommate's death (MI)
"A 27-year-old Troy man who police say accidentally killed his roommate was charged this week with careless discharge of a gun causing death.
Matthew Ferrera shot his roommate and friend, Michael O'Connell, 27, in the abdomen with a 12-gauge shotgun at close range in their Royal Oak apartment on Nov. 19, police said. Ferrera was pointing the shotgun at O'Connell when it went off, police said.
Ferrera was charged Tuesday with the misdemeanor, punishable by up to 2 years in prison.
"It was a tragic, tragic accident," said Royal Oak Police Detective Frank Bonnette. "They were both ex-Marines, both gun enthusiasts and both pursuing careers in law enforcement."
Bonnette said the roommates would wrestle with each other and sometimes toyed with guns. "
