MILLINGTON, Md. (AP) — The Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office says a man has been charged with manslaughter in a shooting at a Millington home.

Eric Johnson Jr., 20, of Millington has also been charged with reckless endangerment and possession of a regulated firearm in the Oct. 11 shooting. The Star Democrat of Easton reports that Johnson turned himself in to deputies Monday morning.

Johnson is also charged in the death of Jonathan Clough.
