A 23-year-old man from Tonganoxie, Kansas had gone outside to relax after drinking a few beers with his girlfriend. His roommates said they heard three gunshots but weren't alarmed because the man regularly fires his handgun in the backyard at night. Then the man came back in the house, seeking help. He had unintentionally shot himself in the head. The bullet from the .45-caliber pistol entered below his chin and exited at the top of his forehead. He was taken to University of Kansas Hospital where he is listed in serious condition.
