Man accidentally shoots friend while showing off gun

man shoots friend

A 32-year-old Brooklyn man was charged with manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon following a tragic accident Saturday night that left his friend dead.

There are conflicting reports about whether the two men were neighbors or roommates, but authorities say Maciej Gorecki had a gun and was showing it off to Zdzislaw ­Golabek, 37. Gorecki put the gun to Golabek’s head and pulled the trigger, apparently not realizing the gun was loaded.

Golabek suffered from a single gunshot wound to the head and was pronounced dead at the scene. Gorecki was later arrested.

Golabek’s family said the news came as a shock and that he was always quiet and never got into trouble.
