CAPE CORAL, Fla.- A 20-year-old Cape Coral man, accused of shooting and paralyzing his friend on New Year's Eve, has turned himself into authorities.

Cape Coral Police said Michael Korf is charged with using a gun while under the influence, firing a gun inside a home and crimes against a person.

He's accused of shooting Evan Vernadakis in the chest, causing injury to his lungs and paralyzing him from the waist down.

Party-goers allegedly put Vernadakis on a couch, then in a bathtub, before finally bringing him to the hospital several hours later, according to police.
