(CBS) — A Bolingbrook man is dead after police say he accidentally shot himself while driving, reports WBBM’s Nancy Harty.

25-year-old Chard Harrison was driving in a residential area of southeast Aurora just after midnight on Halloween when police say he showed off a .45 caliber handgun to his passengers, two Aurora men ages 24 and 25.

Police say Harrison told the passengers it was unloaded and put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger and it went off. One of the other men was able to stop the car by putting it in park.

Harrison was transported to an Aurora hospital where he was pronounced dead. His passengers were not injured.
