TALLAHASSEE, Florida A Florida State University student is free on bail after the accidental shooting death of a fellow student.
Authorities said Monday that 20-year-old Evan Wilhelm of Ponte
Vedra Beach must submit to drug and alcohol testing and surrender
his firearm. Wilhelm also faces a 7 p.m. curfew and must be supervised by his parents.
He faces manslaughter charges in the death of 20-year-old Ashley
Cowie of Orange Park. Another student, 20-year-old Keith Savino of
Tampa, was shot in the wrist.
Authorities said Wilhelm was showing friends the new accessories
on his rifle when the shooting occurred.
The incident happened early Sunday in an off-campus apartment
complex that houses many fraternity members. On Monday, Wilhelm's
fraternity, Lamda Chi Alpha, announced it is suspending the FSU chapter because of the shooting.
