  • Text size: + -

A soldier fatally shot a fellow soldier Sunday in Killeen when he was attempting to scare him out of his hiccups.

Investigators say 22-year old Isaac Lawrence Young was watching football with a couple of friends when 27-year-old Patrick Edward Myers pulled out a gun.

As a joke, Myers put the gun to Young's head to scare him out of his hiccups, according to officers. The gun went off, shooting Young the face. Police say the friends had been drinking at the time.

Myers is currently in custody and charged with manslaughter. His bond is $1 million.
