27 year old Adam Hagan of Jackson is dead after an apparent accidental gunshot wound early Friday morning.  Sheriff’s Lieutenant Bob Gilliam says the call came in about 1:30 am and responding officers found Hagan sitting on a couch with a gunshot wound to his head and the gun still in his hand.  Gilliam says there were three friends in the room with him at the time, and it appears alcohol was involved.  He says initial investigation revealed the deceased shot himself in the head as he was showing off a semi-automatic handgun to a friend while the two were seated on a sofa in the living room.  The friends say Hagan removed the magazine from the gun and put the gun up to his head in jest.  However, the gun apparently still contained a bullet.  Gilliam says the incident is still under investigation .
