Maybe he was using his hand that usually holds the phone or camera to take a picture and instinct made him pull the trigger instead. The gun is owned by his uncle.

This happened a month ago because after he was a month after the incident, his family brought him back for check up because he was , talking to himself and complained of . He is now back to the ICU but the parents are asking help for their bills. They are not well off and they have a very big bill to pay. His mother went back as an in Oman, Jordan in the Middle East.

If he had to have the gun in his picture, why did he have it loaded? He could have unloaded it before the selfie!!

That is just sad. Guns are not made for playing or for showing off. There must be stricter rules about weapons.

parents said he did not know it was loaded and took it without asking permission just for picture purpose :(
