Suspect arrested, charged in connection with Boone County accidental fatal shooting


A 24-year-old man was arrested and charged Wednesday after he was accused of first-degree involuntary manslaughter.

A probable cause document stated Antwane Grant, Tavious Grant and two others were smoking marijuana at a residence in the 1000 block of Claudell Lane on dec. 19. Antwane told investigators he knew Tavious had a gun and asked if he could see it.

After Tavious asked for the weapon back, Antwane handed over the firearm with the barrel pointed toward Tavious, Antwane's finger still on the trigger. When Tavious pulled the firearm, it caused Antwane's finger to pull the trigger.

Tavious Grant died while undergoing emergency surgery at University Hospital.

Antwane Grant's bond was set at $10,000.
