A poor decision cost one Houston, Texas, man his life.
19-year-old Deleon Alonso Smith was at an apartment recently taking selfies with a firearm when the gun accidentally went off and shot him in his throat.
Smith ultimately died from the bullet wound, according to Click 2 Houston.
"It's the worst feeling in my life," said the victim's uncle, Eric Douglas.
Smith’s cousin, who was in a separate room of the apartment when the shooting happened, said they found the firearm earlier that day.
Police are trying to find out where the gun was found.
Smith did not think the gun was loaded, according to police.
Smith is a dad to two young children and reportedly planned to start college this week.
