Live by the Selfie...

Police say Deleon Smith of Houston, Texas, came across a gun and apparently decided to point it at his head and take a selfie. The gun went off. His uncle ran to his side and attempted resuscitation, but his attempt was in vain. Relatives say Smith, a 19-year-old father of two, was a fun-loving person who had planned to start community college the next day, and had not discussed suicide. Police are investigating, but say Smith’s death appears accidental. (AC/KHOU Houston, KTRK Houston) ...Sounds like he wanted to make a joke out of death, but it made one out of him.
