A 19-year-old border policeman killed his friend on Sunday evening after his personal weapon discharged accidentally in Kafr Kanna.
The deceased, a soldier on holiday, was hit directly in the chest before Magen David Adom members tried to resuscitate him.
The policeman was being questioned by police and would soon be transferred to the Department for Police Investigations.
