A Richmond County Sheriff's Office spokesperson tells WJBF News Channel 6, a teen has been arrested in the shooting death of another teen.

Investigators say, around 6:39 on Monday, deputies responded to 2560 Andorra Drive in reference to shots being fired and one person, 18-year-old Delarrion Smith (of the 4100 block of south Allendale Court in Hephzibah), being down.

Upon deputies' arrival at the scene, they located Smith with a gunshot wound to the chest. Smith was transported to Georgia Regents Medical Center for medical treatment, where he later died from his injuries.

Through interviews with the witnesses, investigators learned that Smith had come to 2560 Andorra Drive to give 19-year-old Dominique Shaquille Sullivan (of the 3500 block of Morgan Road) a ride. Smith and Sullivan were described as being very close friends.

Once Sullivan got into the vehicle with Smith, Sullivan reportedly began horse playing with Smith. During the horse play, Smith reportedly pulled out a handgun and pointed it at Sullivan in a playful manner. Investigators say Sullivan grabbed the gun and removed the magazine then pointed the gun at Smith and pulled the trigger believing the handgun was unloaded.

Sullivan has been charged in relation to this incident with Involuntary Manslaughter, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Crime, and Pointing a Firearm at Another. He has been booked into the Richmond County Jail.
