INDEPENDENCE TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- A Michigan man who wanted to teach his girlfriend about gun safety, and then violated the most important rules himself, is dead after he shot himself in the head.

The 36-year-old from Independence Township had been drinking all day and decided to show her that his three handguns are safe when they aren’t loaded.

He put each one up to his head and pulled the trigger.

He died instantly when the third gun discharged.

The man's name has not been released.
