24-Year-Old Alabama Man Makes Strange Declaration Before Shooting Himself Twice

| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

A 24-year-old man in Gadsden, Alabama, walked into a pub just after midnight Tuesday, made a strange announcement and then proceeded to shoot himself twice.

A man walked into Blackstone Pub & Eatery around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday and allegedly said: “I am the whitest man alive.”

He then shot himself with a Springfield XD .357 pistol.

Twice he misfired. The next two shots hit him once in the leg and once in the head.

He was treated at the scene and rushed to Riverview Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Two rounds were found at the bar – one in a wall and another in the victim’s boot, police said.
