Skagit County, Washington: Man Dies After Shooting Himself While Taking Selfies

CONCRETE, Wash. — A Washington man died on Sunday after he accidentally shot himself in the face while taking a selfie, according to police.

The 43-year-old man and his girlfriend were taking photos of themselves with the gun “several times” during the day on Sunday, Skagit County Sheriff’s Office Chief of Patrol Chad Clark told the Skagit Valley Herald.

The girlfriend told police the man was removing bullets and reloading the gun throughout the day. However, a bullet apparently remained in the gun before the man fired the fatal shot.

The death is being investigated as accidental, police said.
