An unidentified man fatally shot himself in the head early on Thursday morning while playing with his gun in the parking lot of a Houston business.

According to witnesses, the man was drunk while he showed off his handgun. He pointed it at his head and pulled the trigger several times, but no bullet fired.

However, the revolver eventually did fire into the head of the proud gun owner.

The shooting happened at 2:30 a.m. and the man was pronounced dead at Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital shortly thereafter, reports the Houston Chronicle.

It is not clear if the man knew that his gun was loaded. Police are still investigating the case, which they believe to be an accident.
