GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) — A woman was fatally shot when a man showed her his shotgun at a Delaware home, state police said.

Troopers responded to a home in Georgetown on Tuesday night for a report of a shooting, Delaware State Police said in a news release. When troopers arrived, police said they found a 54-year-old woman inside the home with a gunshot wound and she died on the scene.

The investigation determined that Jordan Walls, 26, of Georgetown was showing the woman his weapon at the home and a gunshot was fired, police said. Troopers recovered a 20-gauge shotgun at the scene.

Walls was charged with manslaughter, a felony, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, police said. He’s being held on $120,000 cash bond. It’s unclear if Walls has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
