A Missouri man reportedly shot himself in the head accidentally while teaching his girlfriend about gun safety.
According to witnesses James Looney was insistent on giving his girlfriend a personal lesson in firearm safety Friday before taking her to a shooting range, MyFOXMemphis reported.
As part of the tutorial, Looney demonstrated different safety features on several firearms then put the guns to his head and asked if they would fire, Jefferson County Sheriff told the station. The third gun actually went off. The 40-year-old was pronounced dead at a local hospital the next morning. (H/T – FOXNews)
