Deleon Alonso Smith, 19, will be laid to rest sometime soon because of a reported self inflicted bullet wound to his upper body. Smith accidentally shot himself while taking selfies with the gun in his Houston, Texas home.

According to Complex, he and his cousin found the fun earlier that day but his cousin was not present in the room with Smith when the gun went off. Smith was set to start community college this week. He leaves behind two small children and a devastated family.

The case is currently still under investigation.

Taking selfies or any photos with guns is NOT ever smart.  Stay woke. Instagram is not worth your life.
