A U.S. Marine from Minnesota who died on New Year's Day was shot by a fellow Marine.
That's according to charges obtained The Marine Corps Times, which state that Lance Cpl. Andrew Johnson is accused of shooting Lance Cp. Riley Kuznia at the Marine Barracks Washington in D.C.
According to the report, Johnson allegedly shot Kuznia in the head after pointing a pistol at him, and pulling the trigger "in jest."
He has been charged with murder, negligent homicide and involuntary manslaughter.
Kuznia, 20, of Karlstad, Minnesota, was shot around 5 a.m. on New Year's Day while on duty as a team leader for Guard Company at Marine Barracks on Capitol Hill.
According to a release from the United States Marine Corp, Kuznia was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead at 5:59 a.m.
A GoFundMe for Kuznia's family noted that the 20-year-old had just spent Christmas in Minnesota prior to his death, and he was looking forward to a new assignment in February.
Kuznia graduated from Tri-County High School in 2017, where was a member of the Kittson County Central Bearcats varsity hockey team.
