Michigan – Deputies say a Michigan man shot and killed himself while trying to demonstrate the safety of a gun to his girlfriend. As reported by the Oakland Press News, the incident involving the 36-year-old Independence Township man occurred late Sunday evening.

The man’s girlfriend told police he had been demonstrating the safety of three of his handguns when they were empty by pulling the trigger after putting them to his head. The third gun fired while he was showing it.

The man’s death has been ruled a suicide by the Oakland County Medical Examiner.

Undersheriff Michael McCabe is quoted in the report as stating of the incident, “(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.”
