LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- A Leavenworth man is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of another man while they were riding in a pickup truck.

Twenty-six-year-old Justin M. Driscoll appeared in court Wednesday after being charged in the Saturday death of 30-year-old Dick Mathis.

Police say Mathis was shot when a gun discharged and a bullet hit him in the chin. He was one of four men -- including Driscoll -- riding in the truck when the shooting happened. Driscoll and another man took Mathis to a hospital, where he died.

The Leavenworth Times reports (http://bit.ly/15oINkS ) the criminal complaint alleges reckless behavior was a factor in the shooting.

In court Wednesday, Driscoll's attorney asked for more time before a preliminary hearing is scheduled. A status hearing was scheduled for Aug. 16.
