Fort Hood Soldier Shoots Friend While Trying to Cure Hiccups
An arrest affidavit obtained by the Associated Press in September said Myers apparently pointed a gun at the victim’s head to scare him and stop the hiccups.
Myers said he thought the gun had dummy rounds when it was discharged.
The case was tried in military court on the Central Texas Army post because the both victim and suspect were soldiers. Myers has been in the Bell County Jail on a $1 million bond.
