A man posing with a gun and taking selfies was killed when the gun went off and struck him in southwest Houston, police said.
Family members said the victim is 19-year-old Deleon Alonso Smith.
Investigators said Smith was taking selfies with a gun at an apartment in the 9800 block of Forum Park Drive and Bissonnet around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday when the gun accidentally went off, shooting the 19-year-old in the throat and killing him.
I don't want to sound callous but when it comes to accidental shootings this is one of the better outcomes.
I mean no innocent people were shot, and this guy will no longer pose a danger to his community with his careless gun handling.
I'm just saying.
