A 43-year-old South Carolina man accidentally shot himself in the head while demonstrating the proper way to shoot yourself in the head police say. Gagum was watching a movie at his home in Conway early Friday morning when a witness said he began to argue a character’s handling of a gun, according to a local news station.
He said, “that’s not how it’s done,” before pulling the trigger three times while holding it to his head, according to the witness. Gugman didn’t notice the black handgun was loaded, as it fired off on the third pull. According to Emergency Medical Services, Gugman was pronounced dead on the scene.
Gagum made headlines for his exceptional shooting skills in 2010 when he fatally shot one of three intruders who broke into his home and pointed a gun at he and his wife. ”It was him instead of me or me instead of him,” Gagum told a local news station at the time. He was not charged in that shooting.
Accidental self-inflicted shootings are not uncommon, as last month a man accidentally shot himself in the buttocks in a Nevada movie theater when his gun fell out of his pocket. According to police, the 56-year-old man’s injuries were not life-threatening and no others were hurt. The man told officers the gun fell from his pocket as he was adjusting himself in the seat and it discharged when it dropped to the floor. The case was sent to the city’s attorneys for possible charges.
