Police: Student played beer pong before shooting

BOULDER ” A University of Colorado student is accused of accidentally firing a shotgun through some bedroom furniture after playing a drinking game at a house party.

Police say 20-year-old Alex Grayson was playing beer pong Jan. 18 before he wandered into a bedroom at a house party and found a 12-gauge shotgun by the bed.

Grayson allegedly shot the Mossberg shotgun once into the bed and floor, but no one was injured.

The sophomore faces possible charges of reckless endangerment and prohibited use of a weapon. Police say they also lectured the gun’s owner about proper storage.
