FALMOUTH (CBS) – New court testimony reveals that a Falmouth soldier killed in June while in Iraq was shot in the head by his roommate during a game, according to a report.
The Cape Cod Times reports that 22-year-old Army Sgt. Matthew Gallagher was killed during a game called “Quick Draw,” where both men would see how fast they could aim their 9-millimeter pistols at each other.
Prosecutors said 25-year-old Brent McBride held the gun to Gallagher’s head and pulled the trigger. McBride’s lawyer said it was a tragic accident, but Gallagher’s family doesn’t believe that, according to the paper.
McBride could face charges ranging from negligent homicide, involuntary manslaughter or murder, the report said.
