  • One less swimmer in the Darwin Pool !!!

    UW student killed in gun accident
    Casper Star Tribune | Nov 15, 02

    LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - A University of Wyoming student accidentally killed himself by pointing a loaded handgun to his head and pulling the trigger, according to police. Shane W. Rothmeyer, 30, apparently did not know the gun was loaded.

    The accident happened while Rothmeyer and three others were socializing at a residence Nov. 7. The men were drinking but were not legally drunk, according to Commander Dale Stalder.

    Stalder said the group was discussing unloaded weapons when Rothmeyer picked up the .44-magnum, recently purchased by one of the men.

    "It's a horrible tragedy," Police Chief Dave O'Malley said. "You've got one young man who is dead and you have three others who will remember that morning for the rest of their lives."

    Investigators ruled out homicide but planned to do gunshot residue testing.

    Rothmeyer, originally from Casper, studied wildlife management at the university. A memorial service was scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Friday at the Canterbury House.

    Before he pulled the trigger, wonder if he said, "Hey everybody, watch this!"

        That ended up being a real NO BRAINER on his part, huh?

          I had a self-inflicted DOA the same way once-we made the joke that since he thought it was unloaded, the last thing that went throught his mind (before the bullet) was "OHSH*T!" (you have to say "oh...sh*t" in a quarter of a second for this to have the same humor as when we said it.)
