A man in his early 20s was killed Saturday when he accidentally shot himself in the head while driving on the Northeast Side, police said.

The man was driving a blue SUV along FM 1976 near Eisenhauer Road with two friends just after 6 p.m. when he unexpectedly pointed the weapon at his head and made a comment in jest before pulling the trigger, police said.
