MEXICO CITY - A young man in Mexico died after he tried to take a Facebook "selfie" as he pointed a gun at himself.
Oscar Otero Aguilar, 21, of Mexico City, was mortally wounded when the gun he was pointing at his head discharged.
Police said he had borrowed the gun and was waving it around while trying to snap a photo.
Neighbor Manfredo Paez Paez told local media: "I heard a gunshot, and then I heard somebody screaming and realized somebody had been hurt. I called the police and when they arrived they found that he was still alive."
Paez died in an ambulance on the way to the hospital.
Previous selfies posted on his Facebook page showed him in front of fast cars, sitting on expensive motorcycles, hugging beautiful women and posing in a band.
The incident happened last week.
Private ownership of guns is illegal in Mexico.
