A 19-year-old is accused of shooting a man earlier this year.

Brandon Lee Bauer turned himself into Hamilton County authorities about 6 p.m. Wednesday, one day after a grand jury indicted him on a reckless homicide charge, jail officials said.

He is accused of shooting James Driftmeyer April 23 on West McMicken Avenue at Marshall Avenue.

Driftmeyer died May 3.

Police have not said what led up to the shooting, or why Bauer is charged with recklessly causing the man's death, a third-degree felony punishable up to six years.

Bauer is held without bond.

A court date has not been scheduled.
