Man facing mansaughter charge in Grayson County now free on bond

DENISON, Texas (KXII) -- A man charged with manslaughter after accidentally shooting a man in the face, is out on bond.

Brandon Jeffery was arrested on Wednesday at his home.

Police said Jeffery accidentally shot 25-year-old Devin Owens in the face, which resulted in Owens' death days after the incident.

It happened in a car outside of a bar in Denison two weeks ago.

Police say Jeffery thought a handgun he was carrying was empty, and pointed the gun at Owens head and pulled the trigger.

Police say that gun was reported stolen in Sherman.

Jeffery fled the scene and Owens was taken to a Plano hospital where he died due to his injuries.

Jeffery was arrested hours after Owens died. His bond was set to $15,000, and records show he bonded out Thursday.
