LAWTON,Okla_New information in an accidental shooting in Lawton, the victim left without an eye after doctors had to remove it. 

Tyrel Whatley was arrested last month for reckless conduct with a firearm after police say a gun accidentally went off while inside a home.  

His friend Mark Camacho Ramos was shot in the eye. Whatley is now facing additional charges that include carrying a firearm while under the influence and destroying evidence. 

A court document reveals Whatley admitted to having smoked  marijuana through the barrel of a shotgun while handling four other guns. He said while joking around, he pointed one of the guns at Ramos. Whatley was pretending to be a zombie when he accidentally pulled the trigger.

Whatley said he then panicked and destroyed the marijuana and buried the gun in his backyard.
