A teen accused of fatally shooting Conner Weeks last October was indicted Tuesday on involuntary manslaughter charges, Muscogee County Superior Court records state.
Morgan Christopher Springer, 17, faces a maximum of 10 years in prison if convicted of both charges.
Authorities say Springer was holding a shotgun on the back patio of Parker Williams’ Wells Drive home when he pulled the trigger without ensuring the shotgun had no cartridges. Weeks, who was inside the home, was struck by the shotgun blast. Struck on the right side of his body, Weeks was taken to The Medical Center, where he died in surgery.
The grand jury indicted Springer for involuntary manslaughter in two different ways: for pointing a gun at another person and for reckless conduct.
Williams, 17, faces a misdemeanor count of reckless conduct for providing the shotgun to Springer. His case remains open.
