Shaun Ruff: Goes to Hug Suicidal Friend, Gets Accidentally Shot
The friend was in bad shape, the Galveston County Daily News reports: He was in the middle of a divorce and was distraught about it, talking about suicide.
He grabbed a gun and said he wanted to die. Ruff went and hugged him, presumably for both emotional support and to stop the possible suicide.
But the gun went off, and the bullet passed through the man's brain, killing him -- and then continued on to hit Ruff in the head.
Ruff has been hospitalized, but is expected to survive.
