Police arrested a Bellingham man early Friday, April 3, after admitting to police he pointed a gun at a friend’s head while “horsing around” and pulled the trigger, killing him.
Masen Jon Potter, 21, has been charged with first-degree manslaughter in Whatcom County Superior Court after he admitted to police that he shot and killed his friend, Aaron R. Bornemann, with a gun he thought was unloaded at the time, said Bellingham Police Lt. Bob Vander Yacht.
Bornemann, 23, was not only a popular musician in the Bellingham area but also was the son of Bellingham City Council member Terry Bornemann.
Potter couldn’t hold back tears as prosecutor Dave McEachran read a probable cause statement at Potter’s first appearance in court Friday afternoon.
Potter, Aaron Bornemann and at least one other person had been “horsing around” with a .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun Thursday night, April 2, at a rental home Potter lived in at 1241 Grant St., Vander Yacht said.
