A man is dead after accidentally shooting himself in the head while teaching his girlfriend firearms safety.

Deputies and investigators responding to a shooting found 40-year-old James Looney with a gunshot wound to the head.

According to witnesses, Looney was demonstrating how to use the different safety mechanisms on several guns to his girlfriend.

The witnesses said Looney would put the guns to his head, and before pulling the trigger, would ask her if she thouight the gun would go off. With the first two guns, the safety mechanism worked. The third gun fired.

Looney was transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead the next morning.

According to witnesses, Looney was going to take his girlfriend to the shooting range the next day, but insisted on firearm safety the day before.

Deputies believe alcohol was involved. (You can't make this stuff up.)
