    Man accidentally kills himself at shooting range, official says

    An Austin man died today while cleaning his gun inside his car in the parking lot of a Pflugerville shooting range, said Jim McLean, assistant Pflugerville police chief.

    The man, who was not identified because his relatives had not been notified, had left Red’s Shooting Range at 1908 Pecan Street West in Pflugerville around 1 p.m. after shooting his gun at the range, McLean said.

    There were no witnesses to the shooting, he said. Police were notified when someone discovered the man’s body inside his car about 4:40 p.m., McLean said.

    Detectives found a gun cleaning kit on the front seat of the man’s car, McLean said.

    The car was not running but the vehicle’s doors were closed when the accident happened, the assistant police chief said.

    “This is just a terrible tragedy,” McLean said.
    Damn

    Killed cleaning a gun? - doesn't happen. A planned suicide with a 'nice' explanation for the insurance company and family.

    Stupid.

    Least he could have done was keep the shooting range out of the situation.

    I don't get why he was cleaning his gun in the car anyways. I mean why couldn't it wait until he was home. I agree that it was probably just the planned explanation.

    Insurance does not pay on suicide and many polices pay double if its an accident.
    Planed offing most likely!
    To bad the range got caught in this BS!

    Many insurance policies pay on suicide after two years. Some pay double indemnity for accidental deaths. Years ago in NYC police officers NEVER killed them selves, they all accidentally shot themselves while cleaning their guns. It does seem strange to "clean" your gun in the car. I have never cleaned a gun in my car, ever.

    I have cleaned a firearm in a vehicle before. But i was in a foregin country and i keep the ammo in the mag pouch. There is no way in hell someone is going to shoot themself while cleaning their gun if they are doing it right, its just a way to make the family feel good about it. The article also says that the cleaning kit was in the ohther seat.
