This is so sad.
An Illinois teenager by the name of Blake Hannett accidentally shot himself while speaking to his friend on FaceTime. The tragic incident occurred just one day before his 16th birthday.
According to Daily Mail:
Blake Hannett, 15, from Lynwood, Illinois, died after the weapon went off and the screen on his phone went blank on Thursday, police have said.
Officers found the teenager at his desk with a .38 caliber handgun on the floor under his chair.
The site continues:
According to ABC 7, Blake’s family said his death was an accident.
They claim the teen had searched his house for the gun after he had heard a noise, fearing it was an intruder.
Many of his peers at Marian Catholic High School paid tribute to the 15-year-old, who was a part of the school’s marching band.
We pray for Blake’s family during this devastating time.
