Dallas police arrested a man Thursday for what he said is the accidental shooting and killing of a woman Thursday morning at a Red Bird-area apartment.
Rickey Jackson, 19, was taken into custody and faces a manslaughter charge for the death of Shakeydra Freeney.
Freeney died after she was shot in the face early Thursday morning in the apartment in the 7300 block of Chaucer Place at the time of the shooting.
Jackson told police he was playing with a shotgun and pulled the trigger without a round in the chamber. He continued to play with the firearm and again pulled the trigger - this time firing the gun in the face of Freeney.
Jackson ran away from the apartment after the shooting, but was later found and brought in for questioning.
