Santa Barbara student arrested for firing bullet
May 29, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

GOLETA — Days after a gunman killed six people in Santa Barbara County, authorities seized seven guns and 1,000 rounds of ammunition from a man they say accidentally fired a bullet into his neighbor’s apartment.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Mark Williams says the cases are unconnected.

Williams says a bullet came through an apartment wall in Isla Vista Tuesday afternoon, narrowly missing a resident.

He says a University of California, Santa Barbara student living next door told deputies he was playing with a Glock 17 handgun when it went off. Williams says the man legally possessed seven handguns and rifles, which were seized along with the ammo.

Twenty-one-year-old Kevin Tym was arrested on suspicion of negligently discharging a firearm and possessing high-capacity magazines. He was released on bail and had no public phone number.
