A man from Volusia County, Florida, fatally shot himself in the head on Sunday after questioning aloud to a friend if the gun was loaded, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Charles Cooper, 49, had been drinking beer next to a bonfire with a woman at his property in Mims about 40 miles south of Daytona Beach, deputies said. The two had plans to fish and barbecue, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Cooper retrieved a handgun at some point, took out the magazine and then questioned aloud whether there was still a round in the chamber.
“Cooper then raised the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, discharging a fatal round,” the Sheriff’s Office said.
“Cooper fell to the ground right next to a bonfire and was pronounced dead at the scene.”
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office was notified about the shooting at 1:50 a.m. and the medical examiner will perform an autopsy, but all signs point to the shooting being an accident, the Sheriff’s Office added.
Dumb doesn't really cover it. Only in Murica.
I hate that this kind of thing gets called an "accident". It's not, it was completely avoidable, it's a negligent discharge. Anyway, I am a gun owner, quite a few actually. This kind of moron makes me groan. Darwin had probably been trying for years to bag this guy.
Fulfilling the 'duh' in Florida
all guns are always loaded
never point the muzzle of your weapon at anything you aren't willing to destroy
never put your finger on the trigger until your sights are on the target
always know your target and what's beyond
Ban all handguns. They have no purpose in civilian hands.
I think he just wanted to win a Darwin Award.
Darwin Awards have ruled that this is too common to warrant an award.
I don't know anything about guns but if he took out the magazine how did it still shoot him?
You're right Tony M, you don't know anything about guns. Really????
