Police in Pinellas Park said that a Florida man accidentally shot himself in the face, and then died on Tuesday while he was threatening his wife and dog with a gun.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, 57-year-old Dennis Eugene Emery was arguing with his wife in their home at around 6 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
Pinellas Park police said that Emery had pointed a gun at the dog during the argument, and had pulled back the hammer to emphasize his seriousness.
But Emery made the mistake of pointing the gun at himself while trying to release the hammer, and a bullet discharged into his face.
Paramedics found Emery dead at the scene. It was not immediately clear why he had been arguing with his wife.
The Tampa Bay Times reported that police had arrested Emery three times in the last five days, including charges for domestic battery and aggravated assault.
In all, Pinellas Park police had a record of 34 contacts with the deceased man. He had been convicted of drunken driving in 1977, a concealed weapons charge in 1978, and public intoxication in 1983. Domestic violence charges were brought against him in 2013, but they were later dropped.
The View co-hosts burst into laughter over Rudy Giuliani’s ‘Borat’ denials: ‘Please make it stop!’
"The View" panelists burst into laughter over Rudy Giuliani's denial that he did anything inappropriate with a young actress in the new "Borat" sequel.
President Donald Trump's attorney appears as himself in the faux documentary "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm," starring comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and Bulgarian actor Maria Bakalova.
Giuliani accepts an invitation to join Bakalova, who plays Borat's 15-year-old daughter, for a drink in a hotel bedroom after an interview, and Cohen bursts into the room after Guiliani lies down on a bed and stuffs his hand into his pants.
"He says he didn't do anything inappropriate," said host Whoopi Goldberg. "He's just sort of, you know, tucking his shirt in when he was laying on his back."
WATCH: Sacha Baron Cohen used Trump-loving OAN network to infiltrate the White House
Sacha Baron Cohen managed to get the actress who plays Borat's daughter into the White House -- all with some help from the Trump-loving One America News network.
In a preview clip posted online, Cohen's Borat character claims that OAN White House correspondent Chanel Rion brought actress Maria Bakalova, who plays Borat's daughter in the latest movie, into the White House with her.
"They take my daughter into the White House!" Borat boasts. "No need for security checks or COVID test!"
WATCH: Trump supporter gets tied up in knots defending president’s $750 income tax payments
A support of President Donald Trump this week struggled to defend the president paying just $750 per year in federal income tax.
During an interview with CNN correspondent Elle Reeve, a half-masked Trump supporter said that he wasn't bothered by the president's low tax bill because he figured all rich people pay so little in taxes.
"I would love to be able to comment on that," he replied. "I don't know. And it's one of those situations where you and I can both sit here and say if we made that kind of money, you know, you're going to play the tax game. It's set for millionaires to play the game."
