Attorney: Teen Who Fatally Shot 16-Year-Old Thought Gun Was Unloaded

From SF Appeal,
The defense attorney for a teenager accused of fatally shooting a 16-year-old boy at a home in San Francisco's Silver Terrace neighborhood earlier this month said today that his client thought the gun was unloaded.

Outside of court, the teen's attorney, Tony Tamburello, said he thinks the murder charge will likely be reduced to a lesser charge because "there was no malice or premeditation" involving Zeng's death.

Zeng "was his good friend, they hung out together a lot," Tamburello said. "He is extremely sorry, and expressed remorse" about what happened."

Zeng's parents were at today's hearing, and are planning to hold a news conference Thursday to talk about the death of their only son.

His funeral is being held Saturday at 1123 Sutter St. in San Francisco.

Anyone wishing to donate to the family is encouraged to contact Cathay Bank and mention the account titled "Andy Zeng - APACC."
