    This was in the city my mother lives in. What an idiot.

    MARTINS FERRY, Ohio -- Investigators said 21-year-old David Yoho, who shot himself in the head on Monday, had purchased a gun on Friday.

    Police told NEWS9 that witnesses said he was infatuated with it and could hardly put the gun down. But on Monday, things turned deadly when he thought the safety was on. He put the gun to his head and fired.

    It was a .25-caliber handgun that police say Yoho purchased. According to Martins Ferry Police, his wife, Georgia, and two witnesses said they had warned him to put the gun down before someone was hurt, but he wouldn’t listen.

    Monday afternoon, Yoho was showing the gun to two friends at his home on North Zane Highway. Police said that is when he put the gun to his right temple and fired, thinking the safety was on.

    He was transported to Ohio Valley Medical Center, but died later that evening.

    John McFarland, of Martins Ferry Police, said, “Based on the information she gave us, from the time he got the gun he was reckless about how he handled it. And she said multiple times she told him to put the gun away, and he was infatuated with it.”

    Authorities have ruled out suicide and said it was an accidental shooting.

    This incident is still under investigation. Police said the witnesses and Yoho’s wife are all being cooperative.

    WOW... I never cease to be amazed by the lengths that stupidity will travel to prove that common sense is a privilage.

    Clearly, yoyo, or yoho, or yoko, or what ever his name was didn't have the proper respect for the new "toy" he had managed to procure, this makes me go against all that I think is right and start to wonder if there shouldn'y be a mandatory safety course required for firearms purchase? (and possibly IQ test)

    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    But gee! It's not like it's a Real gun...... It's just a dinky little .25 that wouldn't hurt anybody!
    Doh!

    Sorry to see an innocent life (however stupid) lost. It honestly sounds like this kid had limited boundaries and little guidance on life in general. Someone THAT taken in by a gun needs to evaluated for something.

    Sure didn't take him long.
    Well, looking on the bright side...at least he had a chance to play with it over the weekend.

    Another reason I intend to teach my son at an early age to respect firearms, I learned about guns when I was 7 years old taught to shoot and respect them and 1 golden rule "Never point a loaded firearm at anything you dont intend to kill"!
