Man arrested for negligent homicide; had shotgun in bed

Harvey, La. - Jefferson Parish Sheriff's detectives arrested a Harvey man following a bizarre shooting incident that left another man dead.

It happened Sunday at an apartment in the 2800 block of Destrehan Avenue in Harvey.

Detectives say Rene O'Quin was found shot to death from what appeared to be a single gunshot that traveled through the wall of his apartment.

They believe the shot came from a neighboring apartment complex.

Detectives arrested 23 year-old Pierre Camese who lives next to the victim.

Police say Camese admitted to accidentally discharging a 12-gauge shotgun that was on his bed.

Camese told detectives he did not know O'Quin was shot.

Camese says he bought the shotgun following an unrelated domestic incident on Saturday.

He was arrested for one count of negligent homicide and one count of domestic battery from that separate incident.
