A Maryland man who apparently was attempting a stunt with a bulletproof vest is facing serious charges after he allegedly shot and killed his friend. The man, age 30, is facing weapons charges in addition to accusations of violent crimes, including first- and second-degree murder. The man and his friend may have been attempting a stunt in the style of the popular television show "Jackass," according to officials.
News reports indicate that video of the incident exists, as the friends were recording their supposed stunts. First, the decedent was 'dared' to lick a toilet, which he reportedly did. Before the shooting, the victim said he was prepared to take a shot in the chest because of the bulletproof vest. However, the prank turned deadly when the defendant apparently missed the vest, causing catastrophic injuries and allegedly causing the man's death.
