In Facebook message, man admits shooting

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 19 (UPI) -- An 18-year-old Minnesota man admitted in a Facebook message that he had accidentally shot someone while playing with a gun, police said.

Zakaria Ikar Wayso, of Minneapolis, has been charged with being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm, a felony, in the Dec. 3 shooting, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. Wayso is not allowed to have a weapon because of his role in a 2006 motor vehicle theft, the newspaper said.


Police said they found the 19-year-old victim of the shooting in an alley with a back wound.

Wayso later went to the hospital and apologized to the victim and his family and called the shooting an accident.

In the Facebook message, police said, Wayso said the two men were playing with a gun when he pulled the trigger.
