Independence Township man shoots, kills himself while demonstrating gun safety, deputies say

By Megan Semeraz, The Oakland Press

Posted: |

A 36-year-old Independence Township man is dead after he shot himself in the head while demonstrating the gun, deputies reported.

The Oakland County Medical Examiner has ruled his death a suicide.

The man’s girlfriend was performing CPR on the victim when deputies from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office arrived at the residence on Pinedale — off of Sashabaw Road south of Maybee Road - at 9 p.m. on Sunday.

The girlfriend, who also lived at the Independence Township residence, told deputies the victim had been drinking most of the day.

She told authorities that he had begun showing her how to use his three handguns and demonstrating how safe they were when they were empty, which he did by placing the gun to his head and pulling the trigger, officials said.

After doing this twice, he demonstrated the third handgun and the gun fired, striking him in the head.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Undersheriff Michael McCabe said: “(The situation) is pretty unique, as I have never heard of anyone testing out the safety of a gun by pointing at their head and pulling the trigger.”

Three children, ages 7, 10 and 12, were present at the time of the shooting, but they did not witness it, police said. The children are not the biological children of the victim.

The victim’s name is being withheld, pending notification of his family.

The medical examiner said they do not know the victim’s blood-alcohol level at this time.

So you point the gun at your head to test it? Why are we still pulling triggers to "test" guns in 2014?

i would think what he did would be considered the exact opposite of gun safety.

That was NOT gun safety. That was drunk foolery. Sad he lost his life but handling weapon should be done with all mental faculties intact. He tried it three times before being shot.

This title is misleading. I came in here thinking he was at a trade show or something. He was playing Russian Roulette.

Still a sad story, however foolishness is pretty much the ONLY factor in his death. That's got to be hard for family and friends to deal with.
