Police: Man puts 'unloaded' shotgun in roomie's mouth, pulls trigger






TBO.com
Published: November 4, 2010
A 19-year-old Pasco County man has been charged with manslaughter after investigators say he put a shotgun barrel in his roommate's mouth and pulled the trigger, not knowing the gun was loaded.
The shooting happened at 22709 Penny Loop, in a Land O'Lakes subdivision named Lake Padgett South. Michael Dunkley, 20, was pronounced dead at about 12:30 a.m. His roommate, James B. Hopkins, was later booked into the Land O'Lakes jail on a manslaughter charge.
According to the sheriff's office, Hopkins was showing a shotgun to Dunkley and several other men who were in the home's screened porch. Hopkins ejected the shell, but as the shotgun was being handled by the group, someone put the shell back in the gun.
Hopkins, "apparently not aware the round had been placed back in the shotgun, places the gun in the mouth of the victim and pulls the trigger, killing the victim,'' a sheriff's office news release states.
The sheriff's office received a 911 call about the incident at 12:22 a.m.

If anyone there knew anything about firearm safety this would never have happened. If you have any scence at all you wouldn't put a shotgun barrel in your mouth. This is stupid and sad. I imagine the kids were drunk or high.

Rule #1 in firearm safety "Always point the muzzle in a safe direction" It's not manslaughter it's murder. Someone in the group put the shell back in the gun???? Then let this clown point it at someone??? I call BS fry his ass

I wonder how that conversation went?

Trigger happy dumbass:Hey bud, let me put the business end of this shotgun in your mouth.
Barrel sucking dumbass: Yeah, okay. that sounds like fun.
Bang!
Jailbird dumbass: Hey bud, are you okay?
Dead dumbass: (no reply since he's now a dead dumbass)

Reminds me of that saying "you can't fix stupid".

I always thought that Rule #1 was to treat EVERY weapon as though it is loaded at all times???

Obviously, these morons didn't know either rule...

How much alcohol and/or drugs was consumed prior to this event taking place??? ;?

Darwin strikes again!!!

I think that old saying was just proved wrong. Because unless the guy forced him to put the barrel in his mouth, stupid was just fixed.

A classic case of Darwinian Natural Selection. Our species owes this guy a debt of gratitude.
