Police wrote in court document that Dillon told investigators he and Januck were standing in a kitchen about 8:30 p.m., with Dillon's gun lying on a table.

Dillon said when he picked up the gun, it fired, hitting Januck in the head. Witnesses told police that Dillon said he didn't know the gun was loaded.
