Teen (15) accidentally shoots himself dead while chatting on FaceTime

Blake Hannet

On Thursday, December 11th, 2014, a teenage boy from Lynwood, Illinois, USA was chatting with a friend on FaceTime, holding a gun. The weapon went off and the screen went blank. The boy was later found dead.

The boy, who was identified as Blake Hannett, 15, was found at his desk with a .38 caliber handgun on the floor under his chair. Blake’s family said his death was an accident.

They claim the teen had searched his house for the gun after he had heard a noise, fearing it was an intruder. Reportedly, he was more concerned than usual because a suspicious person had been in the neighborhood in the last few days.
