Man Threatening Others With Gun Accidentally Kills Self Instead

JACINTO CITY, Tex. (CBS Houston) – During a fight with his girlfriend and her brother, a man accidentally shot and killed himself while threatening the other two parties with a loaded shotgun.

According to KHOU, the Jacinto City Police responded to a complaint at a nearby home on Wednesday night around 10 p.m., and arrived to find a shooting victim lying out front.

The victim, an unidentified 20-year-old male, died on the scene.

Upon investigating, police reportedly found that the deceased was arguing with his girlfriend and her brother as he tried to kick the female out of the house.

He brought out a shotgun and allegedly began to fire it into the air, threatening both parties with it if they did not leave the premises.

While doing so, however, he accidentally shot himself in the neck area, wounding himself fatally.

No charges were filed against the girlfriend, or her brother.

    Boy you hate to rejoice when something bad happens to someone but boy it sure is difficult to not smile when someone gets what they appear to deserve.

    This is part of the new Obama gun control program. Just as the sex ed programs in schools now teach, a la Clinton, that the LAST person in the world you should have sex with is your wife, the children are taught that the only proper way for white conservatives to handle a gun is for him to point it at himself. The public schools, along with MTV, have made students dumb enough to absorb this and follow the practice.

    Now, if Obama’s new Gestapo breaks down the doo, the home owner will do as he has been brainwashed to do in third grade, and shoot himself. Then Obama will look at the dead white man, shed a tear on CNN, and say, “If I had a gun, and believed I was white, I would look like that man.”

    Don’t laugh. Yesterday’s joke is today’ reality. Look at same sex “marriage.”

      Can you even point to one single piece of legislation with Obama’s signature on it that tightens gun controls or restrictions in any way, shape, or form at all, or are you just spouting hot air you heard someone else say because it “feels right” to you?

      First off Guillermo, you are a human waste. And, so is the guy who shot himself. Swift justice.

    Was it a sawed off shotgun?

      Exactly! How is someone who is reportedly brandishing a long weapon, and even firing it into the air able to shoot themselves in the neck? Are sawed off shotguns legal in LA?
