Cops: Man arrested in friend's accidental shooting death

Posted: Updated:

? An Orange County man has been arrested in the accidental shooting death of his friend.

Investigators say 23-year-old Sean Canty was playing with his father's gun during a party at his house on Jones Drive in Woodbury at around 2:30 a.m. yesterday when it suddenly went off, hitting 32-year-old Fredy Hahn in the head and killing him.

Canty was intoxicated at the time of the incident and did not know the weapon was loaded, according to police.

Officials say Canty has been released on bail and is due back in court later this month.
