IOWA CITY (AP) -

A West Liberty man has been accused of shooting his friend, and his friend has been accused of lying about how he got shot.

Iowa City police say 21-year-old Jonathan Salas Jr., of West Liberty, was riding with his friend, 19-year-old Sergio Martinez, of Iowa City, on Nov. 1. Police say Salas removed an ammo magazine from a pistol he had. He then pointed the gun at Martinez's legs and pulled the trigger. The gun fired and the bullet went through both of Martinez's legs.

Martinez later told police he was shot while walking through an apartment complex by some men he didn't know.

Salas is charged with reckless use of a firearm. Martinez is charged with filing a false police report. It's unclear whether either man has an attorney.
