No, No, Ed...it;s gotta be true. It's on the innernet!
Now, Ed! Play nice - ask him for a link to the news story (they always cover any type of shooting, don't they?) or a copy of the police report (there was a repor made, wasn't there?) before you haul out the old meter.
The OP looks like a newbie that may not know of our ways, especially for bavking up tremendous tales with some sort of outside documentation.
Go tell him you are sorry, and make nice. Yes, you have to. Now do it!

My guess is the someone's finger was on the trigger. And the trigger got pulled. He may not have intended to do it but it was his NEGLIGENT action that led to the discharge you described.
The above would only be turned to "Accident" if there were a previously unknown defect on the firearm and no one had a finger on the trigger.
Adding, who if anyone check the firearm to determine its loaded status? This would be another point of negligence in the op's scenario.

Take the most basic firearms safety course you can find, even if it means reading on the Internet for ten minutes, and apply what you learn, and this type of incident would be impossible.
Now, think about the absolutely USELESS BULLCRAP they include in the curriculum in public schools. There is absolutely NO reason why basic firearms safety (and electrical and some other safety stuff) should not be required in school. It does not require hands-on training to be effective in saving lives.

Freedom is a bit like sex, when your getting it you take it for granted, when you're not you want it bad, other people get mad at you for having it and others want to take it away from you so only they have it.

If I managed to do something this stoooopid I sure wouldn't run to my computer and tell the world
RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!
