A South Auckland teenager was granted bail when he appeared in court charged with the manslaughter of a friend shot with an airgun.

Zhivargo Edward Blake Williams, 18, appeared at the Manukau District Court yesterday afternoon where he was bailed to a Huntly address.

He will reappear in court on March 13.

Shaun Townsley, 18, of Takanini, allegedly strayed into the line of fire while a group of friends were drinking and using airguns to take pot shots at cans in their backyard on January 12.

He died at Middlemore Hospital the next morning. An autopsy showed Townsley was hit in the heart.

Police arrested and charged Williams on Wednesday.
