Police: Man admits to accidentally shooting, killing friend while smoking pot


Alvin Roy Thomas has been charged with criminal negligent homicide in connection to the November 11, 2012 shooting of his friend, 18-year-old Jaque Field, according to the Houston Police Department.

Detectives say Thomas initially told them he and Field were sitting on the front porch of a home in the 5700 block of Reed Road when Fields grabbed the gun and it accidentally fire, striking him.

But earlier this month, investigators re-examined lab results and determined that Thomas had to be lying. When they reinterviewed him, Thomas allegedly admitted he accidentally shot Fields while they were smoking marijuana.
