At about 8 p.m. on Saturday, as the snow tumbled down throughout the city, 32-year-old Maciej Gorecki allegedly went to his friend’s Sunset Park apartment to show off his gun, a law enforcement official said. Gorecki, who thought the gun was unloaded, allegedly held it up to 37-year-old Golabek Zdzislaw’s head and pulled the trigger, a law enforcement official said. But the gun was in fact loaded and Zdzislaw was found inside the 45th Street apartment and pronounced dead. Gorecki was charged with manslaughter and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, police said. Arraignment information for Gorecki was not immediately available.
