Horsing around with a coworker on an active construction site already seems like a fairly terrible idea -- but when the play-fighting includes a real knife and an accidentally loaded gun, the game is downright fatal. Police now say that's exactly what went down at an abandoned lot in El Portal yesterday, where 48-year-old Jose Perez accidentally shot and killed his coworker, Jorge Alvarez.
Around 9:15 in the morning, Alvarez and Perez were horsing around on the lot, an expanse of muddy terrain surrounded by a low concrete wall.
