A man has been facing an indictment in the fatal shooting of a friend while both were Western Kentucky University students.

According to the Bowling Green Daily News, Peter G. Gall was formally indicted Wednesday by a Warren County, Kentucky grand jury on a second-degree manslaughter charge in the September 3 death of 21-year-old Kenneth Davis.

The 21-year-old Gall entered a not guilty plea during a September initial court appearance.

An arrest citation said Gall reported the shooting with a shotgun shortly afterward. The citation said Gall "wantonly caused the death of the victim," listing alcohol as a factor.

Previous court testimony has called it an accidental shooting and said the death resulted from horseplay.

Gall was released from jail September 8 on a $100,000 bond.

An arraignment has been set for December 11.
