This is an appeal of Donald Schuster's conviction by a Clark County jury for second-degree murder with the use of a deadly weapon and battery with the use of a deadly weapon.  In the underlying incident, Schuster and his brother got into a fistfight with four young men.  Schuster retrieved a gun and eventually fired it at the other men.  The first shot hit one man in the chest, which resulted in his death.  A second shot hit another man in the legs.  During his trial, Schuster requested that the district court give a jury instruction on involuntary manslaughter.  That motion was denied and Schuster is now appealing his conviction to the Supreme Court.  ISSUES: Did the district court err in refusing to give a jury instruction on involuntary manslaughter?
