Manslaughter charge in Va. man’s shooting death

HENRICO, Va. — A Henrico woman has been arrested after allegedly shooting her boyfriend to death as they were playing with what they thought was an unloaded revolver.

WWBT-TV reports 22-year-old Sharday Pleasants was charged with involuntary manslaughter after Monday’s shooting. She is being held in the Henrico jail without bond.

Pleasants told police she watched 19-year-old Samuel Clarke III of Mechanicsville take the bullets out of a revolver before they began pointing the weapon at one another and pulling the trigger, but there was one bullet left in the gun.

Police say Clarke died of a gunshot wound to the chest.
