Man Dies Taking Selfies With Gun

Officials say a 43-year-old Washington state man fatally shot himself while taking selfies. The death is being investigated as an accident, after he and his girlfriend were taking pictures of themselves at home with a weapon. The woman told Skagit County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Chief Chad Clark that she and the man had taken photos with the gun several times that day and that he’d loaded and unloaded bullets many times. Clark told reporters that at least one bullet was still in the gun on the last time he fired. The man’s name has not been released.
