A 21-year-old from Hampton Bays was arrested late last month in connection to the shooting death of a fellow Boise State University student last summer.

Following a nearly year-long investigation, Kyle Kelly was charged with involuntary manslaughter. According to the Idaho Press, Kelly accidentally shot Robert Eugene Skinner, 22, in the neck.

Skinner, a university club hockey player from Seattle, suffered what Boise police initially described as an unintentional self-inflicted gunshot wound on August 23, 2019, inside a house near the university at 2:45 a.m. “After further investigation, officers discovered information that the gunshot was not self-inflicted. The shooting still appears to be unintentional but criminal charges are possible,” police said in a press release last year.
