29-year-old Jared Walker, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, was showing his gun to friends on New Year's Day. He had used the gun for target practice a few days earlier and even though he unloaded the gun a bullet was left in the chamber. While showing off the gun he unintentionally discharged the firearm and shot himself in the head.
Jared was taken to the hospital where he was put on life support. Doctors told the family he was in a vegetative state with "zero percent" chance of recovery. Jared was removed from life support yesterday morning and died soon after. It wasn't possible for Jared to be an organ donor as his family had hoped.
