An Independence Township man accidentally shot himself in the head last night while attempting to show his girlfriend a thing or two about gun safety.
Apparently the man, who'd been slinging back adult beverages for much of the day, was demonstrating the safety features of his three handguns by holding them to his head and pulling the trigger when suddenly the third weapon discharged, lodging a bullet into the poor chap's noggin.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and medical examiners concluded that the man had, indeed, failed his own impromptu gun-safety course. An autopsy with the Oakland County Medical Examiner is pending.
