JACINTO CITY, Tex. (CBS Houston) - During a fight with his girlfriend and her brother, a man accidentally shot and killed himself while threatening the other two parties with a loaded shotgun.
According to KHOU, the Jacinto City Police responded to a complaint at a nearby home on Wednesday night around 10 p.m., and arrived to find a shooting victim lying out front.
The victim, an unidentified 20-year-old male, died on the scene.
Upon investigating, police reportedly found that the deceased was arguing with his girlfriend and her brother as he tried to kick the female out of the house.
He brought out a shotgun and allegedly began to fire it into the air, threatening both parties with it if they did not leave the premises.
While doing so, however, he accidentally shot himself in the neck area, wounding himself fatally.
No charges were filed against the girlfriend, or her brother.
Reminds me of the Bugs Bunny cartoon...Bugs, dancing around a character holding a shotgun, sings
Hey! Stop! Look out!
You're gonna hurt someone
With that old shotgun,
Hey, what's up, Doc?
Did it blow up?
My guess is that this is Nature thinning the herd without messing around with the gene pool.
You know, if Obama had a son, this guy might have been just like him!
Again, the jokes write themselves. You can’t fix stupid.
Does she get to stay in the house?
Alternatively, the man needed killing, and the scene was too messy to shoot, shovel and shut up.
All involved parties got together, and agreed that the deceased threatened them with a shotgun before accidentally shooting himself in the back of the neck. That’s their story and they’re sticking to it.
Good. Seems as if a Darwin Award is in order. At least the gene pool is safe from this dolt
Unfortunately he probably already p#ssed in the gene pool before this amazing feat of fail.
I'm trying to visualize this, and having difficulty.
How the heck do you hold a shotgun, in such a way that you have it pointed at your own neck, AND ALSO CAN PULL THE TRIGGER???
Just how long are his arms, anyway??
> The question is how short was the barrel.
Yeah, I thought about that, but wouldn't it then have been described as a "sawed-off shotgun" rather than just a "shotgun"?
“Sir, this end goes toward you and this end goes bang and do not look down the barrel.”
Guess he didn't pass the course.
Unless it’s a sawed-off or a short barreled home defense weapon, it’s not easy to get your trigger finger engaged with the business end below neck level...
Could be. Dead men tell no tales.
Maybe he had The Judge.
Detective to other cops: “Looks like a clear case of improper muzzle control. He forgot the end with the big hole was dangerous. A pity, but you can’t fix stupid.”
Well, it WAS written by a journalist, so we're lucky it wasn't described as an AK-47 or a glock...
Lol, so true!
IF... the shotgun was sawed off, the pellet spread could have been wide, would it not?
Sure wouldn’t want to clean up that mess, anyhow.
Well, I heard (somewhere??) that the couple he was holding down on were taunting him with such remarks as
“He to stoopid to know what he be doing”,
“He ain’t got the guts to pull the trigger”,
and the ‘fatal’ exchange “There aint no bullets in that thing” and the one that assumed room temp said
“OH YEAH? watch this”..
They don’t say if there was alcohol involved or was it just a case of who is in charge of the TV controls?
