WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A judge has sentenced 49-year-old Fabian Griffin to 12.5 year in prison and $5,000 in restitution after the accidental shooting death of a Wichita teen.

Wichita police said 16-year-old Casey James Lawrukiewicz died due to the "unsafe handling" of a firearm on March 3, 2017. Judge Christopher Magana sentenced him on Wednesday. 

An affidavit details a visibly shaken Griffin, following the shot that hit Lawrukiewicz:

"DNP stated that she asked what had happened and Fabian responded that Casey Lawrukiewicz, and he were playing around shooting blanks at each other. Fabian stated that he pointed the gun at Casey and the gun went off. Fabian then said he was going to kill himself because he had hurt his friend." 

The shooting incident happened at around 11:55 p.m. at a home near Harry and Hillside. Sgt. Nikki Woodrow said there were three people, ages 16, 25 and 42, inside the home at the time. 

"There was no disturbance inside the residence," Sgt. Woodrow said. "However, the incident involved the unsafe handing of a weapon by the 42-year-old male."

Lawrukiewicz was taken to a local hospital but succumbed to his injuries.
