PINELLAS PARK — A man visiting the Shoot Straight gun range on Ulmerton Road shot himself in the head with a handgun on Wednesday night, police said.
Pinellas Park police said the man had come to the range with someone else, then shot himself. They said video confirmed that the 8:10 p.m. shooting was self-inflicted.
The man has been taken to a hospital in the area, police said, and "life-saving efforts are being performed."
A phone call to the shooting range went unanswered late Wednesday.
Self-inflicted shootings happen at gun ranges around the state and nation.
In November 2013, a man committed suicide with a rented gun at a Shoot Straight location on U.S. Route 19. Other visitors were present, including a St. Petersburg lawyer and his two teenage sons.
Earlier in 2013, a St. Petersburg man shot himself at a Shoot Straight branch in Tampa.
