    Former Indianapolis Colts running back Zurlon Tipton died after he accidentally shot himself Tuesday morning at a Michigan car dealership. He was reaching into his vehicle to get a bag containing two handguns when one discharged, hitting him in the stomach.

    The Roseville, Mich., police department said it received notification from St. John Hospital and Medical Center in Detroit that the 26-year-old died from his injuries after the incident about 9:30 a.m. in a service bay at the car dealership.

    Never heard of him.

    I assume he's better with a gun than he is with a football.

    Thought the same thing. Maybe he wanted to intimidate the dealer into giving him a free undercoating on his car.

    Too bad that he didn't have some more guns in the bag.

    Why did he bring a loaded gun to a car dealership in the first place? I mean besides the fact that colored folks do like their guns.

    probably keeps it in the trunk of his car at all times in case he has to bust a cap in someone. Probably was removing it when he dropped off for service so nobody would steal them or report them to the po po.

    triggers don't pull themselves..unless it was modified with the trigger guard removed or the hammer on a revolver caught on something..you would have to give the bag a yank either way..he was very reckless if the accident indeed happened as described.

    The four rules of gun safety.
    One: treat every gun as if it's loaded
    two Never point a gun at something you don't intend to destroy.
    Three Know your target and what is beyond it.
    Four KEEP YOUR BUGGER HOOK OF THE BANG BANG UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET!
    Looks like someone didn't pat attention in the NRA basic pistol class.

    Looks like he liked guns.

    Just before last Christmas, Tipton was arrested for allegedly firing a weapon in Greenwood, Ind. Police found a loaded 9mm handgun and a loaded Colt AR-15 assault rifle in Tipton’s car at the time.
