SEMINOLE, Fla. (AP) -- Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies say a 22-year-old man accidentally shot himself in the head while showing
his girlfriend a handgun.

Deputies say Chaz Ursomanno was taken to Bay Front Medical Center early Thursday with life-threatening injuries.

According to an incident report, 24-year-old Naomi Ensell told her boyfriend to put the gun away about 2 a.m. Thursday. But he told her it was safe and put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger. The gun did not fire.

Deputies say he put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger again. This time, it went off.

The man was unconscious when deputies arrived.

    Shot himself at 2AM? While showing his GF the gun? What was he showing her? How he could kill himself? Alcohol a factor? Mark, disagree with the 30 age limit. At 19 I was in SE Asia. Owned guns my entire life w/o incident. My kids too. It's training, training, training, and more training. And "idiot proof" locks for those times judgement gets left in the car. Shame to read about these needless incidents.

    22 years old and put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger...not once, but twice. This guy has my vote for the 2011 Darwin Award. Anybody with a lick of sense knows you NEVER point a gun at anything that you do not intend to KILL, especially yourself. This is the reason why I say that they should raise the age for gun ownership to 30....at least by that age you've acquired some common sense and you're not still acting like some teenager trying to impress your girlfriend with your macho BS! My kids know better and they're only teenagers!
