Navy man shoots self accidentally

PACIFIC BEACH — A Navy SEAL accidentally shot himself in the head early Thursday morning in Pacific Beach, and was on life support at a hospital, San Diego police said.

The name of the 22-year-old man was not released.

Police initially said he died about 3 a.m. at Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla. They later got word from the Navy that the sailor had not died, but was on life support, police Lt. Andra Brown said.

A Navy spokesman confirmed that the sailor had completed SEAL training last week and was assigned to a West Coast-based team this week.

Someone at a residence on Grand Avenue near Lamont Street called 911 about 2 a.m. to report that a man had been playing with a gun and shot himself in the head by accident, police Officer Frank Cali said.

Cali said the victim had gone to a bar, met a woman and brought her back to his residence, where his roommate was sleeping. Cali said the man and woman had been drinking.

The man got out several guns to show the woman, but she asked him to put them away, Cali said. The man insisted that it was safe and put a pistol that he believed was unloaded to his head. He pulled the trigger and fired a round into his head.

Paramedics took the victim to the hospital.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service was investigating the shooting, a Navy spokseman said.

Commodore Collin P. Green, commander of Naval Special Warfare Group One, released a statement saying, “On behalf of the entire Naval Special Warfare community, we are deeply saddened by this unfortunate incident and extend both our hearts and prayers to our teammate’s family during this very difficult time.”

Bullshit (as it should be).

This guy was a Seal? I had a desk job in the army, and even if I was to do something as monumentally stupid as putting a gun to my head, I would at least have the decency to rack the slide several times for good measure. What a complete idiot.

I've never been in the military in any capacity and I would never put a firearm, loaded or otherwise, to my head.

Maybe this guy could have explained to him that Russian Roulette is usually played using a revolver.

We must have better gun laws in this country. This man may have been saved if he was not forced to use guns every day. I will pray for him.

Alcohol and showing off.
