Dats What Friends R 4!!!
Two Purdue University students were arrested over the weekend when a prank they were playing on a friend ended up killing him, said police in West Lafayette, Ind.
Landon Siela, 21, of Fort Wayne, Ind., died from a gunshot wound Saturday while visiting Purdue juniors Cory Lynch and William Calderon, both 22, the Indianapolis Star reported. Lynch and Calderon pointed handguns at Siela when he came out of the bathroom, police said. Both men thought the guns were unloaded, but a bullet fired from Lynch's gun and hit Siela in the neck, they said.
"They said they wanted to scare him when he came out of the bathroom," Police Sgt. Jason Philhower told the Star. The men had been drinking alcohol, he said.
Lynch was charged with reckless homicide and felony pointing a firearm. Calderon was charged with misdemeanor pointing a firearm and false informing.
