    JAMESTOWN — A Castor man lost his life today after putting a gun to his head and pulling the trigger. It wasn’t suicide.

    Bienville Parish Sheriff John Ballance said Seth Randall Rushing, 20, had pulled the trigger of a .22-caliber pistol four or five times but it misfired.

    “For whatever reason he put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger one more time and it discharged. He immediately fell to the ground,” Ballance said.

    Rushing was flown to LSU Hospital in Shreveport, where he was pronounced dead around 2:43 p.m., Ballance said. His death has been ruled accidental.

    Rushing had been with a group of other young men who were riding four-wheelers during the early morning hours. They returned around 2:30 a.m. to a residence on Watts Road in the Jamestown community and began unloading items from their ATVs.

    Rushing took the gun from his four-wheeler and attempted to fire it. When it misfired, Rushing commented to the others, “This thing doesn’t work.” And that’s when he pointed it at his head.

    I would not call it accidental or suicide, just plain old stupid.

    Although if we apply the gun safety rules we would have to declare it a suicide. Since we never point a firearm at anything we do not intent to shoot, and we always treat them as if they are loaded and ready to fire, well the rest is easy to figure out.

    While it involves firearms, it is not self defense related... Belongs in off topic.

    Yeah, I got tapatalk, too. So what?

    True but I don't think it was gun safety rules going through his mind when healed the trigger....rather it was something else.

    That is so sad. His parents need to be prayer for after losing their 20 yo son to an accident no matter how it happened.
