SAN DIEGO — Navy officials have confirmed that a Navy SEAL who accidentally shot himself in the head has died.
Navy spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Frank Magallon tells the U-T San Diego that Petty Officer 3rd Class Gene “Geno” Clayont, Jr. was taken off life support on Saturday. He is survived by his parents and three sisters.
San Diego police were called on Thursday after the accident. Police say Clayton had gone to a bar and brought a woman back to his apartment and was showing her guns when he put a pistol to his head, believing it was unloaded, and pulled the trigger.
