PALATKA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Palatka teen fatally shot his friend while playing with a gun.

Investigators say Zack William Glenn and Trarelle LaQuan Mack -- both 17 -- were counting money for pizza when Glenn picked up a gun. Glenn reportedly pointed the gun at Mack and said, "Give me your money."

Authorities say the gun fired when Mack grabbed for the gun. He was shot in the chest and later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Glenn has been charged with manslaughter with a firearm of a child under 18 years of age. He's been transported to a juvenile detention facility.
