Another sad tale in the ongoing saga of responsible gun owners everywhere. I mean that -- it is sad, particularly since the gun and the ego interacted for a tragic result.
A man posing with a gun and taking selfies was killed when the gun went off and struck him in southwest Houston, police said.
Family members said the victim is 19-year-old Deleon Alonso Smith.
Investigators said Smith was taking selfies with a gun at an apartment in the 9800 block of Forum Park Drive and Bissonnet around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday when the gun accidentally went off, shooting the 19-year-old in the throat and killing him.
What a damn waste.
