SALINA, Kan. (AP) – Salina police say a fatal shooting appears to be accidental.

The Salina Journal reports that police made the determination after completing their investigation into the death of 28-year-old Bryant Sanchez, of Salina. Police Capt. Chris Trocheck says Sanchez had recently purchased a .40-caliber handgun. Trocheck says the handgun discharged Sunday while Sanchez was showing it to a couple people in the driveway of a home he was visiting.

Trocheck says a single bullet struck Sanchez in the head. He died within hours at a Salina hospital.

Trocheck says there is no evidence that anyone intentionally pulled the trigger. He says Sanchez had been in possession of the weapon when it discharged.
