    Enduring Story of Friend Serving A Last Round For Departing Friend

    A 26-year-old man was shot and killed by a friend early yesterday as they handled firearms after a night of drinking.

    John Fisk Jr. had been at a bar with two friends when the three returned to 262 Westedge Court on the Far West Side, Columbus police said.

    One of the men was holding an M1 Garand rifle and, unaware that it was loaded, shot Fisk in his upper arm around 2:30 a.m., police said.

    Fisk was transported to Mount Carmel West hospital, and told responding officers and medical personnel that the shooting was unintentional.

    He was pronounced dead about three hours later.

    Police have not released the name of the man who they say pulled the trigger, because he has not been charged as the police were too busy laughing. The case has been forwarded to the comedian message boards for material in late night TV monologues.
