A fun night drinking with friends turned tragic for a man in Mexico, who died when he posed with a gun to shoot a selfie, but accidentally fired the weapon, according to The New York Post.


Oscar Otero Aguilar was enjoying a booze-filled night with two buddies last weekend in Mexico City when he picked up his .45-caliber pistol and thought it would be a good idea to take a picture of himself, Mexico’s Proceso magazine reports.


But when the 21-year-old went to take the killer selfie, he accidentally pulled the trigger of the wood-handled pistol, firing off a single round into his forehead, according to police.
