A man who was killed during a fight at an Austin, Texas club earlier this month apparently was accidentally shot by his best friend, KXAN reported Tuesday.
Arturo Torres, 28, was playing pool with his former brother-in-law Edgar Macedo, 26, on March 1 at Austin’s Club Zota. Torres bumped into another bar goer and an argument ensued, according to an arrest warrant obtained by KXAN.
Macedo was later followed to the restroom by the men who started the argument. Torres followed them, discovered they were fighting and then pulled out a handgun in attempt to break up the tussle. Another man tried to wrestle the gun from Torres and caused it to discharge, striking Macedo.
