A man accidentally shot and killed himself at a West Dallas party early Saturday after showing off his pistol to friends, police said.
A group of friends had been drinking in the 3400 block of Iroquois Drive near Loop 12 and Singleton Boulevard when Andreous Robinson, 20, went outside around 1 a.m. and shot a few rounds into the air. Police said Mr. Robinson then came back inside and thought that he'd discharged all of the rounds, so he put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, said Sgt. Bruce McDonald, a homicide officer.
Mr. Robinson was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
His death came less than a day after a man was fatally shot in a similar incident at the Miramar Motor Hotel in the 1900 block of Fort Worth Avenue in north Oak Cliff. In that incident, police said, four men were drinking vodka and using crack cocaine Friday afternoon when one of them accidentally shot another to death.
