That is the word from The Patch (Kara Seymour/April 9) which said Daniel Brymer, 21, from Newtown has been charged with aggravated assault and involuntary manslaughter in the death of EMS practitioner Daniel J. Smith, 31. According to the newspaper, the pair were helping another friend move out of an apartment when they began joking around with an airsoft gun as they packed belongings. Smith shot Brymer first with the airsoft before handing the weapon over to him. Brymer then put the airsoft beside a 9mm handgun he had in his pocket. When another bout of horseplay broke out, Brymer inadvertently grabbed the 9mm and fired on Smith. Smith died later in hospital. Smith worked full time for the Plymouth Ambulance Association. Funeral services for him were held Saturday.
