Mock-Wrestling Between Former Marines Escalated to Fatal Shooting, Sheriff Says


What started as casual wrestling ended up with one man shot and killed, says the Walton County Sheriff in Georgia.

38-year-old Daniel Tabor Reed was arrested for the death of his friend. Sheriff Joe Chapman said the men, both former Marines, were playfully wrestling until a real fight broke out.

The victim was fatally shot at about 1 a.m. early Saturday, Chapman said.

Reed was being held at Walton County Jail as of Sunday morning.
