    HOUSTON, Texas – A 19-year-old trying to take an Instagram selfie died Tuesday.

    The teen tried to take a picture of himself holding a gun to his head when the gun went off, according to the Houston Police Department.

    The Texas victim’s uncle said he ran into the apartment and attempted to resuscitate his nephew but he had already died.

    The victim’s family said the teen, who has not been identified by investigators, leaves behind two young daughters and that he was a fun-loving person. Family members said the shooting was a complete accident and the victim never talked about suicide.

    Investigators with the Houston Police Department are still looking into the shooting, but “all indications are this is an accident.”

    No other injuries were reported.

    :clap:

    I can only imagine another life was saved. If you're that stupid with a weapon it would only be a matter of time before he hurt or killed someone else.

    Sadly, any attempt to resuscitate someone who just put a bullet through their brain is only going to fuck up more of the carpet.

    I don't think any more evidence needs to be presented that evolution is in reverse than the "selfie"

    You knew it would go bad when hippies and hipsters latched onto the selfie trend.

    Folks don't like to think of loved ones committing suicide. People who talk about suicide don't usually do it. People who do it don't often talk about it. How could they know it was an accident if he was alone? How do you "accidentally" pull a trigger with a gun to your head? Did they find supposed "selfie" on his phone or what? Story is bullshit?

    Excellent - a useless piece of shit who is too stupid to breed is no longer breathing. I am happy - the human gene pool just got .0000000000001% cleaner.
