The headline above the click2houston.com story almost gets it right: HPD: Man fatally shot while taking selfies with gun. Despite the obvious implication that the victim shot himself, it’s possible someone who’d heard the song #SELFIE one too many times lost self-control. The story’s text is even more oblique. “A man posing with a gun and taking selfies was killed when the gun went off and struck him in southwest Houston, police said . . .
” 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 . . . Investigators said Smith’s cousin was in the apartment but in another room when it happened. The cousin told police they found the gun earlier Tuesday, but investigators are working to find out where.” Probably snuck in. Condolences.
