Teen kills himself by accident while taking a selfie



19-year-old Deleon Alonso Smith accidentally shot himself in the throat in his Houston, Texas apartment on Tuesday while taking a selfie with a loaded gun. According to Smith’s cousin, the teen accidentally pulled the trigger of a gun they had found earlier on Tuesday morning while pictures of themselves.

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

“A numb feeling. It’s like still unbelievable. Yesterday was my birthday. He came to wish me a happy birthday. And then to hear this kind of news. He was starting community college tomorrow,” said Smith’s grandmother Alma Douglas.
