Brevard County Deputy Austin Walsh died Saturday morning after being shot by his roommate Andrew Lawson, according to the Sheriff Ivey.
Lawson called the Palm Bay Police early Saturday morning and stated that he had accidentally shot his roommate Austin.
Sheriff Ivey provided an update on his facebook page.
“He and Austin had taken a break from playing an online game with a number of their friends and were just kind of standing around talking. Lawson was holding a handgun, which he believed he had unloaded and at one point in their conversation, Lawson jokingly pointed the gun in Austin’s direction and pulled the trigger,” Ivey said.
