Tukwila teen charged with first-degree manslaughter, unlawful possession of firearm
Kendric Tray Carter, a Tukwila teen, was charged Aug. 14 with first-degree manslaughter and unlawful possession of a firearm. Prosecutors say the 18-year-old was playing with a handgun inside a relative's apartment early August 1 when the gun went off, hitting 19-year-old Gerald Rogers in the chest. When deputies arrived a witness said several men in the apartment had been "playing a game with the gun and pointing it at each other" prior to the shooting, according to court documents. Later that day, Carter turned himself in to the sheriff's office. He told detectives he had been playing with the gun when it went off, but denied pointing it at Rogers. Detectives pointed out that the bullet went straight through Rogers' chest and the gun would have been pointed directly at him. After reminding him of that fact, detectives say Carter got angry and refused to answer more questions. Carter is set to be arraigned August 27 in King County.
