Police say man accidently shot himself in head

CHICKASHA —

A Chickasha man accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun Nov. 29, according to local police. 

Chickasha Police Officer Joel Hendrix said he met with Jordan Seibold in the 800 block of 12th Street at 2:42 a.m. in reference to a gunshot victim. 

Seibold said her boyfriend was in the bedroom and had accidentally shot himself. 

Hendrix said he entered the residence where he found Samuel Bingaman in bed holding a towel on his head. 

"Bingaman said he was playing with his 22 caliber revolver and accidently shot himself in the head," said Hendrix. "I noticed the revolver lying on the floor next to the bed, underneath a night stand. 

Hendrix said he learned Seibold came home from work around 11 p.m. Nov. 28 and Bingaman started drinking around 1 p.m. that day. 

"The two of them had been arguing, but it was all verbal," said Hendrix. "Bingaman had the gun out and began to play with it. Seibold said she was never threatened and Bingaman never threatened suicide." 

Seibold said Bingaman told her he had unloaded the gun. 

"Bingaman began to spin the gun on his finger, playing around when the gun fired," said Hendrix. "The bullet entered the top right of his head bouncing off the skull and exiting from the top of his head." 

CPD Chief Eddie Adamson said no charges will filed in the incident.
