  • A Missouri man is jailed on involuntary manslaughter charges after he allegedly shot a friend to death during a Super Bowl party.
    The Platte County prosecutor's office charged 34-year-old Joshua W. Bailey on Monday in the death of 22-year-old Joshua Anderson of Riverside.
    Investigators say Bailey was drinking and smoking marijuana at the Super Bowl party at his home Sunday when he took out a handgun to show his guests. He reportedly thought the gun was empty when he fired it, hitting Anderson in the head.
    Police say the shooting was accidental. Bailey is a convicted felon who is not allowed to possess a firearm. Bailey is being held on $500,000 bond.
