NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A 19-year-old North Miami Beach man is accused of fatally shooting his 19-year-old friend while watching Monday Night Football.

North Miami Beach police say the shooting happened about 10 p.m. Monday as Brandon Lapeikis and three friends were watching the football game. Lapeikis told detectives he got a pistol from another room, pointed it at Christian Salazar’s head and pulled the trigger.

Witnesses say Lapeikis said something to the effect of “game over” just before pulling the trigger.

Police say Salazar was shot point blank. He died a short time later at a nearby trauma center.

Investigators say Lapeikis had lost touch with Salazar after high school, but recently started hanging out with him again.

Lapeikis is being held without bail at the Maimi-Dade Jail. He’s charged with second-degree murder.
