PHILADELPHIA — Investigators say a Philadelphia teen who accidentally shot himself in the head was handling the gun after his manhood was challenged by another person during a webcam chat.
Capt. John Gallagher says the 18-year-old was in an online chat early Wednesday when he shot himself with a gun he apparently believed was not loaded.
The Philadelphia Daily News reports the teen remained hospitalized in extremely critical condition.
Investigators say they’re still trying to find out who the teen was chatting with when he was wounded. They want to find out if the exchange was recorded.
Gallagher says the teen’s two brothers were asleep in the room at the time. Police haven’t released his name.

I totally agree. I'm curious if the police are going to try and charge the person who was "challanging his manhood". Does anything think they should be charged?

Why are they wasting money and resources trying to find who was talking to this idiot? They are not at fault, and they won't gain anything by actually finding this person. So much stupid surrounds this incident.

Hardly an accident if he held it up to his head and pulled the trigger.
