Ottawa County teen in Russian roulette shooting called "danger to society"

by

OTTAWA COUNTY (WKZO) -- Prosecutors are calling an 18-year-old man being held in connection with the Russian roulette death of his friend a "danger to society."

Eighteen-year-old Richard Usher Jr. was in an Ottawa County courtroom yesterday, where his attorney asked for a lower bond.  A judge denied the request, and Usher remains jailed on a 350-thousand dollar bond on manslaughter and felony firearms charges.

Sixteen-year-old Brandon Kuiper died late last week and he'll be laid to rest tomorrow.  Ottawa County sheriff's deputies say the shooting occurred while Kuiper and Usher were "horsing around" with a .22-caliber handgun.
