TYLER - Police have arrested 19-year-old Brandon Raynard Willis.

Authorities say Willis accidentally shot 18-year-old Daveon Johnson Tuesday with a 38-revolver.

Police say while Willis was explaining a story he pointed the gun at Johnson, and pulled the trigger multiple times thinking it was unloaded.

Johnson died not long after the accident.

Tyler Police tell KETK, "Again we preach and preach and preach that if you have a firearm you treat it as it's loaded. You should always double check that it is unloaded especially if your going to be showing something to someone about the firearm."
