A drunken Houston man shot himself in the head Thursday morning as he played with a gun in the parking lot of a local business, police said.
The man’s name has not yet been released, but The Houston Chronicle noted that the shooting took place around 2:30 a.m.
Witnesses claimed he was showing off the gun, a revolver, before pointing it at his head and pulling the trigger several times. It did not fire.
Then the man apparently decided to tempt fate once more. Witnesses reportedly said he put the gun to his head for a fourth and final time, pulling the trigger and sending a bullet into his brain.
He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital shortly thereafter.
