RIVERSIDE, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri man is jailed on involuntary manslaughter charges after he allegedly shot a friend to death during a Super Bowl party.

The Platte County prosecutor's office charged 34-year-old Joshua W. Bailey on Monday in the death of 22-year-old Joshua Anderson of Riverside.

Investigators say Bailey was drinking and smoking marijuana at the Super Bowl party at his home Sunday when he took out a handgun to show his guests. He reportedly thought the gun was empty when he fired it, hitting Anderson in the head.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/WrvUmJ ) police believe the shooting was accidental. Bailey is a convicted felon who is not allowed to possess a firearm.

Bailey is being held on $500,000 bond. Online court records do not indicate that he has an attorney.
