A former WKU student accused of fatally shooting his roommate has been formally charged with second-degree manslaughter.

Peter Gall, 21, was indicted Wednesday by a Warren County grand jury, according to Bowling Green Daily News.

Gall was arrested Sunday, Sept. 3, after calling the Bowling Green Police Department to report that he had shot someone. Police arrived at the 1600 block of Kenton Street to find WKU student Kenneth “Alex” Davis, 21, bleeding on the floor, according to Gall’s arrest citation.

Gall’s attorney, Alan Simpson, told WBKO the shooting “was an accident, this was not an intentional shooting.” Simpson added that Gall and Davis were “roommates and very good friends, if not best friends.”

Gall was released from Warren County Regional Jail on Sept. 8 on a $100,000 bond and is currently living in Frankfort with his family and attending counseling, BG Daily reported.

Second-degree manslaughter is a Class C felony punishable by imprisonment for between five and 10 years in prison in Kentucky. Gall’s arraignment is scheduled for Dec. 11.
