A LeRoy man is dead after deputies say he was shot at a party in Genesee County late Friday night.

According to deputies, 23-year-old John Carney was shot after what authorities are calling a horseplay incident involving about a half a dozen others. 

It took place inside a barn on Byron Holley Road in Byron.

Deputies say Carney was shot with his own permitted semi-automatic handgun around 11:45 p.m. 

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputies have interviewed witnesses, and say the shooting is still under investigation.
