A 36-year-old Michigan man shot and killed himself accidentally while trying to demonstrate gun safety to his girlfriend while he was intoxicated.
Oakland County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at about 9 p.m. Sunday to a home where the man’s girlfriend was performing CPR.
According to the girlfriend, the man had been drinking all day. He then explained to her that his three handguns are safe when they aren’t loaded, according to Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe.
So the man demonstrated this by placing the guns against his head and pulling the trigger.
According to the Detroit Free Press, when the man pulled the trigger on the third handgun, it discharged. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Thankfully the three children, ages 7, 10, and 12, who were home at the time of the shooting didn’t witness it. The kids were not the man’s biological children according to police.
Alcohol appears to have been a factor in the shooting, according to the sheriff’s office.
The man’s name has not been released yet.
