SALT LAKE CITY — Tyson Yellowbear said he didn't even realize he had fatally shot Danny Tapuaialupe on the night of March 28, 2006.

Yellowbear on Tuesday claimed to members of the state's Board of Pardons and Parole the accidental shooting came after he brought a half-ounce of methamphetamine to sell to the woman who rented an apartment at 3522 S. 500 East in Salt Lake City.
