Police have charged an Auckland man with the manslaughter of his friend who was shot dead with an airgun during a drinking session.
Shaun Townsley was killed on January 12 when he and friends were drinking in the backyard of a Manurewa home and shooting targets off a fence.
In a statement this afternoon, Counties Manukau police said they had charged an 18 year old man with manslaughter.
He will appear in the Manukau District Court tomorrow.
