Lake Havasu City police cite alcohol as a factor in an apparent accidental shooting Friday resulting in the death of one man and the arrest of his friend. Lieutenant Joe Harrold said officers responded just before 9:00 p.m. to a report of a shooting at a home in the 3200 block of Arapaho Drive.
Harrold said Kristopher Setser, 26, was lying on a bedroom floor with a gunshot wound to his chest. Setser died following transport to Havasu Regional Medical Center.
Setser’s friend Eric Huffman was arrested for suspicion of manslaughter. “Detectives learned that Huffman was handling a pistol when it fired, resulting in Setser being struck in the chest,” Harrold said.
Huffman made an initial court appearance before he was booked into the Mohave County Jail.
