WILKES-BARRE — A man accused of shooting his friend gave up his right to a hearing Friday.

Brandon Switzer from Nanticoke was charged with involuntary manslaughter in June.

Switzer is accused of shooting Zachary Williams, 22, in the head at a home on North Sherman Street, while the two were playing with a gun.

People close to the victim say the two were good friends.

They also say Williams left behind a 1-year-old daughter.

Switzer is out on bail.
