Teen Fatally Shoots Himself While Taking Instagram Selfie With Gun

A 19-year-old Houston man is dead after accidentally shooting himself while taking a selfie, according KPRC.

Deleon Alonso Smith was attempting to snap a photo for Instagram while posing with a gun when it went off, striking him in the throat Tuesday afternoon.

Smith’s family members are reeling from news of his sudden death.

“It’s the worst feeling in my life,” Eric Douglas, the victim’s uncle said.

“It’s a numb feeling. It’s still unbelievable,” Smith’s grandmother Alma Douglas told the station. “Yesterday was my birthday and he came to wish me happy birthday, and then to hear this kind of news.”

Smith leaves behind two young daughters.
