Concrete, WA (openstreetmap)

A 43-year-old man from Concrete, WA, USA, died on Sunday, February 28, 2016 after accidentally shooting himself in the face with what he thought was an unloaded gun.

Reportedly, the man and his girlfriend were at a residence in the 46000 block of Baker Loop Road taking photos of themselves with the gun when the incident occurred.

The girlfriend reported that the pair had done this several times during the day, with the man apparently removing the bullets and then reloading the gun multiple times.

After the last time, however, a bullet apparently remained in the gun.
